Novak Djokovic Beats Rafael Nadal To Reach Wimbledon Final

Novak Djokovic will face Kevin Anderson in his fifth Wimbledon final after the three-time champion beat world number one Rafael Nadal 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (11/9), 3-6, 10-8 on Saturday, July 14.

Djokovic led by two sets to one when play was halted on Friday evening and the Serb returned under the Centre Court roof to win the second longest men’s semi-final in Wimbledon history at five hours and 14 minutes.

The 12-time Grand Slam winner, who lifted the Wimbledon trophy in 2011, 2014 and 2015, is back in a major final for the first time since the 2016 US Open.

He is currently bidding for a fourth championship at the All England Club and 13th Grand Slam title.

Djokovic will be facing Anderson in Sunday’s final.

Anderson beat John Isner in a six-and-a-half hour semifinal that ended at 26-24 in the fifth set Friday night, pushing back the start of Djokovic vs. Nadal.
