Novak Djokovic: Every rivalry between Big Three is special on its own way

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic says every rivalry between the Big Three is special on its own way. The Serb is set to fight against record eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer for the main glory at The Championships. Federer, 37, beat Spain's Rafael Nadal -- the remaining member of the Big Three group -- to reach the final at The All England Club.

Ahead of the final, defending champion Djokovic admits to feeling extra mental pressure due to their past. Djokovic enters the Wimbledon final with a positive head-to-head record against Federer as he leads 25-22. Three of those 47 matches came in a Grand Slam final as Djokovic beat Federer in back-to-back Wimbledon finals in 2014 and 2015 respectively, before he also beat the Swiss at the US Open a few months later.

"Every rivalry between us three is special on its own way. With Federer I feel there is even more mental pressure because of our past and everything that has happened in the past. We have played two finals here and I have won both.

Truth to be told it was four or five years ago but it means knowing that I have beaten him on his favorite surface and on the court on which he has won so many titles," Djokovic exclusively told Sport Klub after Saturday's practice.
