Wimbledon day 12 recap: Federer faces Djokovic in a long-awaited revenge

The final of the men'sn singles of Wimbledon 2019 will be the opportunity for Roger Federer to avenge the two defeats against Novak Djokovic in 2014 and 2015. They will be the finalists; the Serb defeated Roberto Bautista, while the Swiss Maestro beat his eternal rival Rafael Nadal at the end of a challenge of great quality (now in the head-to-head Nadal leads 24-16).

Federer and Serena Williams (coincidentally the two Wimbledon finalists) were voted the best tennis players of the year at the ESPY Awards (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award). Serena is the tenth time that she won this award, while Federer is the ninth time he won this recognition of ABC (but previously given by ESPN).

Philip Brook, head of the All England Club from 2010, decided for a statue in honor of Andy Murray. Should this happen this would be the second statue present at the Club, after that of Fred Perry. Murray was the first British champion to win the men's singles at Wimbledon, 77 years after the last time, when the winner was just Fred Perry.

Today the women's final; Serena Williams is looking for the much-dreamed Slam record. On her way Simona Halep, ready to take advantage of any occasion.
