Bautista Agut wins 2nd set against Djokovic at Wimbledon

Bautista Agut wins 2nd set against Djokovic at Wimbledon

Federer and Nadal will battle for a place in the final later Friday, 11 years after they mesmerised Centre Court in a Grand Slam championship match widely regarded as the greatest ever played.

And, let's be honest, this tournament desperately needs an exciting match to light it up, as it's been pretty mediocre stuff by and large on the men's side so far.

You can start a free five-day trial of PS Vue right here, and you can then watch a live stream of Federer vs Nadal on your computer via the PS Vue website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, PlayStation (3 or 4), or other supported device via the PS Vue app.

"This has been a remarkable tournament for me and to be in another final is a dream come true", said the top seed.

So, the 2.62 about no tie breaks is certainly an option again in a tournament that plenty of players have complained about in terms of the slowness of the courts. Over his last three matches, he's created 35 break points and converted 16 of them.

He's struck me as the sort of player that doesn't truly believe in himself at elite level, similarly to Goffin and many others, and I'd find it hard to have any faith in him causing a shock in these circumstances. "I think he's got more depth on his backhand", he said.

Not only is Calvert releasing his victor and three confident prop picks, he's also including his best bets for the first semifinal featuring Novak Djokovic vs. Roberto Bautista Agut. Still, oddsmakers list the 33-year old Spaniard as the -130 favorite (risk $130 to win $100), with the 37-year old Swiss legend going off at +110 (risk $100 to win $110) in the latest Federer vs. Nadal odds.

However, Federer further added that he will obviously analyze Nadal's game with the help of Seve and Ivan before coming into the match.

Strangely, they've only met on three occasions on grass throughout their career - a nod to Nadal's struggles on grass this decade, perhaps - with Federer taking two of those clashes.

Correct score punters will have noted that a lot of the sets between these two end 6-3, with half of their last 28 sets against each other ending in that scoreline.

Agut has had a good Wimbledon looking in prime form and defeated "Next Gen" star Karen Khachanov in straight sets in the third round.

The match was briefly interrupted after a fan at Centre Court became ill during the second set. Bautisa Agut, a 31-year-old ardent baseliner, topped Djokovic in Doha, Qatar in early January and again in Miami in March after Djokovic won the Australian Open.

"I'm not expecting to learn new things about him".

But Djokovic was relentless and tightened his grip, breaking twice for a 4-1 lead, and eventually claimed victory on a fifth match point.

Djokovic won easily in the fourth, though he needed five match points in the final game to close it out.
