Men's Wimbledon Tennis Final: Roger Federer v Novak Djokovic

What is left to say about these two great champions? Roger Federer has won the Wimbledon title 7 times and is into his tenth final, Novak Djokovic has 2 titles here so far at SW19 and is the defending champion.....

Roger Federer has played brilliant tennis throughout the 2015 Championships and in his semi-final against Andy Murray was simply unstoppable in his play. Still only broken once in the whole tournament (by Simon) Roger is serving phenomenally and his 1st serve % needs to stay high in the final to set up his points and create shot making opportunities against Novak Djokovic. Federer is very confident and pressurising his opponents with his returning at Wimbledon especially attacking 2nd serves, as he did with Murray in the semi-final. Federer is also looking confident in the net and expect him to have a few tactics in order to mix up play should he need to against Novak.

Djokovic has also looked very good since his comeback win against Kevin Anderson in the 4th round. He dealt with US Open champion Marin Cilic convincingly and also powered past Richard Gasquet in straight sets in the semis. Novak though has shown signs of frustration in a few of his matches and knows he will have to be on top of his game if he is going to deny Roger an 8th Wimbledon title. Novak will have to use his excellent return of serve to give himself opportunities when he can and his brilliant defence must be working well to combat Federer's penetrating shots. Djokovic himself will be looking to attack at any opportunity.

It is going to be fun to see which player can counter punch the first and try to dominate from the start. The match looks set to be very close and if I had to chose I would sway with Federer as he is showing great feel during the championships so far. It is a big opportunity for Federer to win another Grand Slam title at his favourite event. However never discount world number 1 Novak Djokovic who is ultra consistent and a formidable opponent in every match he plays. One thing we can be assured of.... it is going to be a great match and who ever wins the title will truly deserve to be Wimbledon Champion.
