Wimbledon Scores And Results: Roger Federer Defeats Novak Djokovic In 4 Sets, Advances To Men's Final

Six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer played a nearly flawless match against world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the Men's semifinals on Friday, and Federer advanced to the final in the 2012 Championships at Wimbledon with an impressive four-set win (6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3). He seized control of the match during the third set, and Djokovic slowly started to erode during the final set by committing more unforced errors than usual.

For the match, Federer hit 31 winners to just 10 unforced errors, while Djokovic managed 28 winners but committed 21 costly unforced errors. Second serve points also plagued Djokovic, as he won only 57 percent (24/42) of his points on his second serve.

Federer now awaits the winner of the other Men's semifinal match between No. 4 Andy Murray and No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
