Wimbledon Scores: Novak Djokovic Edges Past Gasquet To Enter Finals
Djokovic has set up a date with 7 time Wimbledon champions Roger Federer in the 2015 Wimbledon finals. For the defending champion at center-court, this is going to be the 17th Grand Slam final.
Federer came back from two sets down to force a decider in the last final, though Djokovic managed to win it at the end. He feels this final well be “probably the biggest challenge I can have.”
“This is where he loves to play. This is where he plays his best tennis, I think. It’s his court,” said Djokovic, who will seek to join his coach Boris Becker on three Wimbledon titles.
“It was a very important match for me to win last year because I’ve lost quite a few grand slam finals. To win that match in five sets against Roger on grass was definitely something that gave me a lot of confidence.”
21st seed French-man Gasquet reached the semifinals in 2007 for the last time, where he was defeated by Roger Federer in straight sets.
Djokovic now seeks his 9th Grand Slam title having failed at Rolland Garros last month.
