Roger Federer will look to extend his record at Wimbledon.

The eight-time Wimbledon champion defeated Rafael Nadal 7-6 (3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court Friday to secure his 12th final at the All England Club. 

Federer dominated from the service-line, finishing with 14 aces while landing 69 per cent in play on his first serve.

The 20-time Grand-Slam singles title-holder will face Novak Djokovic in the final Sunday.

Federer won his record eighth Wimbledon title in 2017, but lost to Djokovic in the final in both 2014 and 2015.
