Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic set to extend record at Wimbledon

Wimbledon

Playing Djokovic was the sternest test and he came through a dramatic five-setter dubbed the greatest clay-court match of all-time by Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe.

This is the first time all four male semifinalists at a Grand Slam tournament are in their 30s.

"He must view the semi-final as a normal match and treat it as if it was a first round match".

The two now-legendary players first met 12 years ago at the French Open but that quarter-final was something of an anticlimax thanks to a back injury that forced Djokovic to retire when already trailing by two sets to love. The list could go on and on and on.

Additionally, if you can't watch live, you can get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage as an additional add-on when signing up for your free trial. And while many will be mourning the absence of a Federer-Nadal final, this more than fills the hole. Is not much time to think about if you are enjoying, you are suffering.

Nadal led the head to head 16-7 by 2010, only to see it become 16-14 by early 2012, but he wrestled back the impetus to open the gap to 21-15 by the end of 2013. After losing the first set, Djokovic went on to take the next two sets.

Rafael Nadal (right) braces for a "complex" Novak Djokovic in their 52nd meeting. Djokovic has had the air of a troubled man for most of this tournament and has been reluctant to talk about his serial flare-ups on court, against officials, fans, his box and himself. He has one Slam final appearance in that span.




The title of favourite awaits the victor, a spot in the final is on the line. The two will play at Wimbledon on Friday for the third time, with their record an even 1-1.

"It's starting to come together for me". I think I did a lot of things well. "Hopefully I can maintain that".

"It is always a big challenge to face Novak".

"I was close to beating him and I couldn´t because Rafa always has a little bit more than the rest of the players on tour". His quarterfinal win over Kei Nishikori was a dominant display, as he hit 40 winners to just 21 unforced errors, won 85 percent of his first-serve points and broke Nishikori seven times.

But you also have to work very hard, and Nadal has that quality in spades.

"Anything could happen, so this is a big achievement for me to get to the semi-finals at Wimbledon". You have to accept that if you want to win important things.

Moreover, Djokovic has historically been a better grass-court player and could potentially be a little more rested, as he wasn't pushed almost as hard in his quarterfinal matchup. "You need to be ready for it".
