Here's how much money the Wimbledon men's champion will earn

Bidding to extend his own record of being the oldest man to win a Wimbledon title in the Open Era, Federer has only beaten Djokovic once in a Grand Slam final. Federer was seeded second over Rafael Nadal and silenced critics with a clinical performance in the semi-finals against his arch rival in a classic four set encounter. Roger played better. Good luck for the final @Wimbledon 2019. I don't think it's a huge edge, but it's enough for a recommendation in today's final.

The two players have met 47 times on the tour, with Djokovic leading 25-22. The five-set match, played 11 years ago, is considered one of the best tennis matches in history.

Having arrived back in his residence of the Bahamas after being eliminated from Wimbledon in a classy second-round clash against archival Rafael Nadal, Kyrgios has and not so subtly flown his flag for Federer - of whom he regularly refers to as the "GOAT" - and in doing so taken another dig at Djokovic.

Or maybe Djokovic will push his total to 16, just two behind Nadal and four away from Federer. The 37-year-old Federer is looking to become the oldest man to win a Grand Slam singles crown. So for players maybe like Nadal or myself that like to have a little more time, it's a constant pressure that you have to deal with. Last year, I had chances here. Their consistency and hunger keeps the rest of the pack on their toes and it therefore seemed inevitable that two out of this reigning triumvirate of tennis kings would go onto reach the final at this year's Wimbledon.

Jonas Forejtek and Jiri Lehecka won the junior boys' doubles title at Wimbledon. The match was played at a very high level.

Last year, Djokovic beat Kevin Anderson in straight sets, but a straightforward win is highly unlikely this time around.

Parts of Manhattan in the dark after power outage
Saturday's outage occurred on the 42nd anniversary of a NY blackout that crippled the city during a heat wave on July 13, 1977. Video shared with CNN showed fans still in their seats in the darkened venue, clapping and cheering despite the power outage .

"He just rushes you to everything". And she has lost to Williams nine out of the 10 times they have played each other.

Federer used his backhand to devastating effect in an instant Wimbledon classic against Rafael Nadal to emerge a 7-6 (3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 victor and book his spot against Novak Djokovic in the finals.

"Regardless of who's across the net or what is happening around, I'll definitely give it my all", Djokovic said. Today's challenge will be incredible, and the mental factor will be more important than the physical factor and the technical factor.

While Federer had a slightly tougher draw, one still expected him to saunter into the semi-finals.

Still, it'll take that and more to get past the No. 1-seeded Djokovic, who is up to his usual body-bending, grind-it-out excellence at the baseline, even winning a 45-stroke point while eliminating Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the semifinals.

The German ex-pro claimed it was an open secret Federer and Djokovic don't get on.
