Novak Djokovic opens up on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal after reaching Wimbledon final


Djokovic beat Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in his semi-final this afternoon.

The Serbian will now be able to put his feet up and watch on as his two biggest rivals fight it out to play him on Sunday.

Not since 2008 has Federer met Nadal at the All England Club – an epic final with Nadal won in five sets.

Excitement is at fever pitch for the second semi-final and even Djokovic is looking forward to tuning in.

“Of course I will watch it,” Djokovic said.

“My coaches will probably see the whole match but I’ll definitely see most of it.

“I am a fan of that match. Federer-Nadal is one of the most epic rivalries of all time so I am looking forward to it.”

Djokovic was made to work for his spot in the final as Bautista Agut impressed by taking the second set.

The world No 1 admitted he was unsure how the match would pan out when they were still tied midway through the third.

“I had to dig deep,” Djokovic added.

“Roberto was playing his first semi-final at a Grand Slam but regardless he was not really overwhelmed by the occasion or the stadium.

“First set he was managing his serves and made some uncharacteristic unforced errors.

“But he established himself in the second set and started to play better. He played his serves very well and it got very tight.

“In the third set the match could have gone different ways.”
