Roger Federer turned away world No. 1 Novak Djokovic on Friday during the 2012 Wimbledon semifinals, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3, for the right to play in the men's final on Sunday.
Federer will have a chance to overtake Djokovic for the top ATP ranking if he can beat the winner of Friday's other semifinal (between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Andy Murray) in Sunday's title match. That would give Federer 286 weeks atop the rankings, a feat which would equal Pete Sampras for the most time ever spent at No. 1.
The 30-year old Federer will be looking for his 17th Grand Slam championship and seventh Wimbledon title, the latter of which would tie Sampras for the most of all-time.
Djokovic won last year's Wimbledon crown, but was no match for Federer's precision on Friday at the All England Club.
