Wimbledon 2019: Novak Djokovic overcomes Roberto Bautista Agut to enter sixth final

Rafael Nadal celebrates beating Sam Querrey in the quarter-finals

In years gone by the impression was that Nadal saw Wimbledon as a bit of an afterthought following the clay season, but he's been all business this year and he looks the right favourite.

On Friday, Federer gets his shot at Nadal on grass and hopes to prolong his pursuit of a ninth championship at tennis' most prestigious tournament. "But it was a joy to play against Rafa there, on his court", Federer said. "You can dive into all that stuff or say this is grasscourt tennis and just attack".

The 32-year-old will go into Sunday's final seeking a 16th major title with a career advantage over both his great rivals.

Djokovic is seeking his fifth trophy, and second straight, at the All England Club, while Bautista Agut is making his Grand Slam semifinal debut.

Rafael Nadal beat Roger Federer the last time they met at Wimbledon, in 2008, in what is considered to be one of the greatest matches ever played.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic reached his sixth Wimbledon final Friday as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal prepared to meet at the All England Club for the first time since their epic 2008 title showdown.

The Big Three's domination might have limited the emergence of younger talent, but Meagher believes fans should enjoy while it lasts. He is in his 13th semi-final at the tournament and 45th at the majors.

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.

For me, I expect Nadal to win it on current form, but it doesn't feel like good value taking him at 1.68 against Federer on grass, so just a small wager on no tie breaks for me. There are a variety of other Wimbledon odds you can target like the game spread, where Nadal is favored by 1.5.

Like Roenigk, Wertheim suggests there is a case to make Nadal favorite on Friday.

"It is still exceedingly hard to call Federer the favorite in this match", he wrote. He has been just terrific in this tournament.

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal's semifinal match can be watched live on ESPN.

"The longevity of Federer and Nadal has been a testament to their imagination". Incredibly, the two stars have never met at the US Open.

So who wins Federer vs. Nadal?

If he doesn't it could be another one-sided affair for an elite player this Wimbledon.

"He may need to, because as far as their current form goes, Nadal may have the edge". This is only the second time he's made the Wimbledon semifinals having dropped just one set.

There's very little to separate the two rivals but bookmakers lean towards Nadal.

That said, the underdog has won this battle in two of the last four clashes and Federer is certainly capable of turning up and increasing his level from anything we've seen so far this fortnight.

Odds on the match to be decided in three or four sets are 6/4, while a five-setter is now at 9/4.
