World number one Novak Djokovic  takes on six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer  in a blockbuster Wimbledon semi-final on Friday. Djokovic has dominated men’s tennis in recent times, winning four of the past six majors and has also had the better of the Swiss ace during that period. The Serbian has been victorious in six of the past seven meetings between the pair, but still trails Federer 14-12 in career head-to-heads. Amazingly, none of the 26 clashes between these players has ever been played on grass, which is Federer’s best surface.

Although he appeared to be hampered by a back injury during his fourth round match against Xavier Malisse, Federer was back to his best in the quarter-finals, dropping just five games in his three set win over Russian Mikhail Youzhny. Djokovic’s victory over Florian Mayer was equally as easy, with the defending champion dropping just nine games.

British hope Andy Murray  lines up in fourth consecutive Wimbledon semi-final when he takes the court against Frenchmen Jo-Wilfried Tsonga  after coming from a set down to beat David Ferrer on Wednesday. The Scot will be confident of reaching a maiden final at the All England Club having defeated the world number six in their past four meetings, with two of those wins having come on grass. When Murray and Tsonga met in the Wimbledon quarter-finals two years ago, Murray won in four sets after Tsonga took the opening set.
