Novak Djokovic sends warning to Roger Federer

Defending champion Novak Djokovic reached another Wimbledon final as he bids for a fifth title.

The 32-year-old Serbian will meet Roger Federer on Centre Court on Sunday.

Djokovic, the reigning champion and world number one, has strolled through to his sixth SW19 showpiece and victory over eight-time winner Federer would give him his 16th grand-slam title.

That would take him to just four behind the Swiss and at five years his junior, few would back against him going well past Federer’s total.

The Serbian who has 260 as the most weeks at world number one is looking forward to making another history of dislodging Federer from his position of 310.

The Serbian is currently on 260, but if he continues to dominate the men’s game he could have surpassed that by this time next year.

And the 32-year-old admits he is “looking to make history”.

“Of course, I would love to have a shot at as many grand-slam titles as possible. Those are probably the top goals and ambitions. Next to that is the historic number one, which is not so far away,” he said.

This will be the fourth time Djokovic and Federer have met in a grand-slam final and the 48th they have gone head-to-head.

Federer, who had to beat his greatest rival Rafael Nadal in the semi-final to reach what is his 12th showpiece, knows there are not many secrets in each other’s game.

“It’s the same like going into a Rafa match,” he said. “I think the moment you’ve played somebody probably more than 15 times, especially in recent years also a few times, there’s not that much more left out there.
