2012 Wimbledon: Roger Federer Defeats Novak Djokovic In Semifinals

With an emphatic four set victory, Roger Federer defeated the world's No. 1 ranked player Novak Djokovic to earn a trip to his first Wimbledon final since he won the tournament in 2009.

Federer defeated Djokovic in the first set, before losing the second set to even the score. However, Federer won the next two sets 6-4 and 6-3 to earn a four set victory.

Djokovic, the tournament's top seeded player in men's singles, had not lost a Grand Slam event since his loss in the 2011 French Open. The Serbian-born player won the next four tournaments including the Wimbledon Championships in 2011.

Federer advances to the finals where he'll face the winner of Friday's match between Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfred Tsonga.
