The men’s semi-finals get underway at Wimbledon tomorrow with Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer going head to head in one of the matches.
As number one and number three seed, this side of the draw at SW 19 has gone the way many expected and now these two fantastic players go up against each other.
Looking at Djokovic to begin with, he has been as consistent and professional as ever and has not really looked under threat in the tournament so far.
The Serbian has dropped just one set in the tournament, showing that he is on top of his game at the moment.
Djokovic is looking to win back to back titles at the All English Tennis Club, something he has never achieved before. He is now going for his sixth Grand Slam title and fifth in two years.
The 25-year-old will know what a tough test he faces though and that he must be at his absolute best to reach the final.
As for Federer, he seems to love playing at Wimbledon, with six titles at SW 19 already to his name he has the experience and knowhow to go on and win a seventh.
However, in the quarter-finals Federer looked back to his best and was victorious in straight sets. He has now failed to make a Grand Slam semi-final just three times since 2004, which shows what a fantastic player he is.
This match could not be any more difficult though as Djokovic is the number one in the world at the moment. It will take a massive performance for the man from Switzerland to come out on top.
With his form over the last two years, it is no surprise that Djokovic goes into this match as the favourite. He has odds of 1.44 (4/9) with Ladbrokes.
Despite Federer’s history at Wimbledon, he will know he has to upset the odds to reach the final. You can back him at 3.20 (11/5) with SportingBet.
Djokovic will be expecting to win this encounter, but will know it will be tough. A 3-1 win for the Serbian is being offered at 3.75 (11/4) with Bet365.
Federer has the ability to win, but if he is to do so it may go the distance. A 3-2 win for the former world number one has odds of 10.00 (9/1) with StanJames.
As mentioned, Djokovic could get off to a slow start, leaving the door open for his opponent to take the first set. A recommended bet is for Federer to go 1-0 up in the match, taking the first set 7-5 which is available at 25.00 (24/1) with Betfair.
