Wimbledon 2019: Men’s Semi-final Preview

Novak Djokovic Vs Roberto Bautista Agut

Top seed Novak Djokovic will aim for a sixth Wimbledon final, as he faces Roberto Bautista Agut for the 11th time.

The defending champion defeated David Goffin in the quarter-finals, and is looking to make it back to back Wimbledon titles for the second time in his career.

For the Spaniard, it is a chance to make his first Grand Slam final, and he would become only the third Spaniard to do so at Wimbledon, behind Manuel Santana in 1966 and Rafael Nadal between 2006-08 and between 2010-11.

Djokovic has grown from game to game, dropping just one set to Hubert Hurkacz in the third round, while Bautista Agut’s only dropped set came at the hands of Guido Pella in the previous round.

Roger Federer Vs Rafa Nadal

The 40th encounter between Nadal and Federer is upon us. It will be a battle of the fluid all-court game of Federer against the aggressive baseline counter-punching brutality of Nadal’s game.

Federer has perhaps looked the little less sure of the two, but of course once normal service has been resumed for the 20-time Slam champion, he has looked as dominant as always on this surface.

All players have dropped at least one set, but Federer was caught napping by Kei Nishikori in the quarter-final. Still you would struggle to back against Federer in his own wheelhouse in Wimbledon, but this might be a long one.
