Novak Djokovic enters Wimbledon "Club 70" with Federer, Connors and Becker

  • Rafael Nadal Roger Federer

After going more than 1½ years without playing each other anywhere, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will be meeting at a second consecutive Grand Slam tournament when they face off in Wimbledon's semifinals.

That gave Nadal a 24-15 career edge head-to-head, including 10-3 at the Slams. That includes a 10-3 record in Grand Slams.

Overall, Nadal has been favorite in eight of their 13 Grand Slam matches (not including Friday's semifinal).

"It is the biggest match of the year because you're talking about two greats of the game".

Federer: "Rafa has improved so much over the years on this surface". He's also playing very differently.

Added fellow BBC broadcaster John McEnroe, who also holds three Wimbledon singles titles: "You can overhype a match, but I don't think you can overhype this one".

That´s despite Federer having five titles at the US Open while Nadal has three. Visit SportsLine now to see Sean Calvert's strong 2019 Wimbledon picks for the semis, all from the British tennis expert who's up almost $4,400 on grass-court events.

"I am excited to play Roger again at Wimbledon after such a long time".

Similarly to David Goffin, RBA has the game on this surface, with his flat hitting and good movement, to cause some damage to the defences of Djokovic, but mentally I'd probably put him in a similar bracket to Goffin.

"The only thing - and probably the only reason why we're able to be where we are - is because we love the game", Nadal said.

"We had some brutal conditions to play (in) there". "So you can either dive into tactics and all that stuff like mad for two days - or you're just going to say: 'You know what?" He feels comfortable here. "I need to train, get stronger". Making the third round on debut in 2005 just after turning 18, Novak was the semi-finalist two years later and again in 2010, still waiting to appear in the first Wimbledon final.

And while she and Cooper never married, she said that she wasn't against the idea. "Yes, of course. I'm not the kind of person who is against it".

"I am serving better. I go about it like every other match".

Federer and Nadal have both looked on top of their grass-court games in serene paths through to the semi-finals.

In between, the Swiss has swatted away young Briton Jay Clarke, French 27th seed Lucas Pouille and Italian 17th seed Matteo Berrettini with minimum fuss.

"If you're nearly clocking 140 (miles per hour) serves, you should be rewarded a little bit more probably".

"Technically he has always been the finest, but his physical level is still incredible and it is unbelievable at his age".

"I don't know, " Murray answered, mimicking previous replies he had given this week.

But Nadal did win the last one, edging Federer 9-7 in the fifth set of the 2008 final - considered by many the greatest match in tennis' lengthy history - as daylight dwindled to nothing.

Querrey, a semi-finalist here in 2017, finally got a foothold on Nadal's serve in the eighth game but making any form of sustained attack proved to be mission impossible.

"Not so much the French Open, I do believe". But that isn't figuring into the Swiss maestro's psyche ahead of his semifinal clash with the Spaniard at Wimbledon 2019.

Federer, who is aiming for a record-extending ninth men's singles title at Wimbledon, was nine majors clear of Nadal at the end of 2007 - when he was 26 and had already won 12 of his 20 majors.

Federer alluded to that too, after his fourth-round win against Matteo Berrettini, a big-serving Italian who managed only three aces in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 demolition.
