Djokovic leads 25-22 overall, 9-6 at the majors, 3-1 in Grand Slam finals and 2-1 at Wimbledon.
One thing Federer will have in his favour is the unwavering support of the Centre Court crowd and that is something Djokovic will have to accept.
Another century stat followed by reaching the 100 victories mark at Wimbledon after the quarter-finals.
Federer has been looking to add to his tally of 20 titles, while Nadal has been snapping at his heels with 18 Grand Slams to his name.
Perhaps Federer, who turns 38 on August 8, will extend his lead on the career list to a men's-record 21 championships, which would leave him three ahead of Nadal, who is 33 years old, and six ahead of Djokovic, who is 32. I won in Halle (on grass on the eve of Wimbledon). The Swiss and the Serb have actually had a thrilling rivalry when it comes to the Wimbledon final.
Rather surprisingly, they've only met three times on grass, with Djokovic winning the most recent two clashes, but those head to head matches on the surface show similar data for each player - there's little to be gained by analysing their previous grass meetings, particularly given the last one was in 2015.
Federer and Nadal hadn't played since then at Wimbledon until their semifinal Friday.

Becker also revealed in the semi-final the adulation Federer receives from fans annoyed Djokoic.
That rather edgy first set downed our no tie breaks wager, but anyone that took a chance on the 3-1 win for Novak Djokovic that I suggested at 3.75 in the other semi final would have enjoyed a nice victor. The Japanese sensation has been improving year by year and always looks like a serious threat at the Grand Slams. An early break could rattle Federer and take the crowd out of the match. Federer, understandably, seemed more jovial about Friday's match.
A fifth Wimbledon triumph for Djokovic, who won the 2011, 2014, 2015 and 2018 titles, would take him closer than he has ever been to Federer's tally.
Federer and Nadal are both visibly different.
Swiss Federer, 37, produced a stellar performance to beat long-time rival Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals.
Ice-cool operator Federer has proved time and time again that he has the temperament to get the job done on tennis' biggest stage. But the second set was perhaps a nightmare for the Swiss, as the Spaniard thrashed him 6-1.
He clung on at 3-5, saving two match points, then had a break point as Federer served for the match. A commanding display from Federer saw him tackle past Nadal and into his 12 Wimbledon final.
