2012 Wimbledon: Roger Feder Playing For Eighth Title After Defeating Novak Djokovic

It wasn't one for the ages, but Roger Federer will still take it - the seven-time Wimbledon champion will advance to the 2012 Finals in hopes of his eighth championship at the event after defeating defending champion Novak Djokovic in four sets Friday morning at Centre Court of the All England Club.

There was little doubt of Federer's win after the pair split the opening sets. A seemingly confused Djokovic managed to win the second set, but that would be his only lead on the day. The defending champion faulted several times with balls hit into the net, and grew visibly angry with his play after the second set. Federer seemed to coast through most of the match, winning by a final score of 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Federer, advancing to the final for the first time since beating Andy Roddick in 2009, now waits for his finals opponent - He will play the winner of Friday's afternoon match between No. 4 Andy Murray and No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
