Roger Federer expects "great" Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic

Roger Federer expects a mouthwatering Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic as the Swiss bids to claim his eighth title.

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer expects a "good game" against Novak Djokovic when he faces the top seed in the final at the All England Club on Sunday.

Federer has reached his ninth Wimbledon final following a comfortable straight-sets win over Milos Raonic this afternoon.

Prior to that, Djokovic battled past Grigor Dimitrov in four sets to book his place in the showdown as he bids to claim his second Wimbledon title following his triumph in 2011.

"It's always great to play Novak," Federer told BBC Sport. "We always have good games, we have played a lot lately and it has gone back and forward.

"He is a great champion so he is used to these occasions too, he already has this trophy too so he knows how to do it and I hope it's a good game.

"An eighth title would mean a lot. I am unbelievably proud every time I come here and the first one was special a dream come through and I get another chance to go through these emotions."

Federer has also added to his Grand Slam record by qualifying for his 25th final.
