Wimbledon 2019 will have a taste of revenge for Roger Federer, who will challenge Novak Djokovic in the men's singles final, after the Serb defeated the Swiss Maestro in the 2014 and 2015 finals. the two best possible finalists, in what fully reflects the hashtag of this edition #JoinTheHistory; in fact the two samples have won Wimbledon twelve times.
Djokovic has won the last three consecutive Slam-finals against his rival, also considering the 2015 US Open final and, in general, the last 3 matches against Federer. Nole also won 8 of the last 10 challenges against the rival; Roger triumphed in the round robin of the ATP Finald 2015 and in Cincinnati, again in the same year.
In the head-to-head the Serb leads 25-22 (53% of wins). it is interesting how on grass-courts Djokovic is ahead 2-1, thanks to the two finals won at Wimbledon in 2014-2015, with Federer winning in the semifinals of 2012. In the Grand Slam matches Nole leads 9-6, while in general, in the finals the world no.
1 is ahead for 12-6 (3-1 in the Grand Slam finals). Today's challenge will be amazing, and the mental factor will be more important than the physical factor and the technical factor. Federer is the greatest interpreter of all time on this surface, but the two finals lost against Djokovic on Church Road were the result of a psychological factor, rather than a physical one, with the Swiss who was not able to get break points in the decisive moments.
From a mental point of view Djokovic is a robot, and Federer has in recent years shown he is suffering his opponent's tennis just from the point of view of mental strength. Today Djokovic will be the favor of the final victory, however, Federer will have his chances; if he will take the court without the psychological pressure and he will have physically recovered the wasted energies lost against Nadal in the semifinals, then nothing will be impossible, even against the most uncomfortable opponent for him on grass-courts.
The physical factor must also be considered; Nole's path was relatively simple, and above all he wasted less energies than his rival. To reach the final Djokovic defeated rivals such as Kohlschreiber, Kudla, Hurkacz, Humbert, Goffin and Bautista.
Federer eliminated opponents like Harris, Clarke, Pouille, Berrettini, Nishikori and Nadal. In his career Djokovic has won a total of 74 titles, including 15 Slams (4 Wimbledon, 7 Australian Open, 3 US Open, 1 Roland Garros).
Federer has won a total of 102 titles, of which 20 Majors (record, 8 Wimbledon, 6 Australian Open, 5 US Open, 1 Roland Garros). Federer holds the record of titles won on grass-courts (19) and on hard-courts (70). In this season the Swiss won 3 titles (Dubai, Miami, Halle), the Serb won two (Australian Open and Madrid).
