Federer to play Nadal in semi-finals

Wimbledon 2019
Venue: All England Club
Dates: Jul 1-14

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will meet at Wimbledon for the first time since the 2008 final after both advanced to the semi-finals. Federer beat Kei Nishikori 4-6 6-1 6-4 6-4 for his 100th match win at the All England Club, while Nadal beat Sam Querrey 7-5 6-2 6-2.

In 2008, Nadal won 9-7 in the fifth set against Federer in a rain-affected final that spanned nearly seven hours.

Together, they have won 10 Wimbledon titles between them.

Four-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic will face Roberto Bautisa Agut in Friday's other semi-final.

It is the first time for 12 years that Djokovic, Nadal and Federer have all made the last four.
