Wimbledon 2012: Roger Federer Reaches Final After Defeating Novak Djokovic In 4 Sets

Roger Federer is heading back to the finals of Wimbledon after defeating top-seeded Novak Djokovic in the first gentlemen's semifinal of the day, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

The players split the first two sets, but Federer looked like the better player from the start and it showed in a big way as the match wore on. Federer controlled the pace of the match, moving Djokovic around the court and forcing the Serbian into uncomfortable positions. While Federer had only a slight 31-28 advantage in winners, Djokovic's 21 unforced errors compared to Federer's 10 was the big difference in the match.

Federer will take on the winner of the second semifinal between fourth-seeded Andy Murray of Great Britian and fifth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in Sunday's final.
