In Friday's semifinals at the 2012 Championships at Wimbledon, six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer defeated defending champion Novak Djokovic in four sets to advance to the finals. Djokovic appeared to be lost and playing out of desperation right from the outset, and Federer took advantage, playing with ease the entire match -- while Djokovic kept scrambling.
Federer won the opening set, but Djokovic regrouped and evened things up by claiming the second set. That would prove to be the last time that Djokovic would be in the lead, as he continually hit the ball into the net and grew increasingly, visibly frustrated with his play. In the end, Federer was far and away the stronger player in the match and won by a final score of 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.
Federer is now set to play for his seventh Wimbledon title. He will play the winner of Friday's afternoon match between No. 4 Andy Murray and No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
