Wimbledon Semi-Finals: Rafael Nasal and Novak Djokovic

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will resume their long-time rivalry on the Grand Slam stage as they face each other at the Wimbledon Semi-Final today.

32 year old Nadal, and Djokovic, 31, have faced each other 51 times, but not as deep into a Slam since the 2014 French Open final. The duo have met only twice at Wimbledon, Nadal winning their 2007 semi-final when Djokovic retired hurt, the Serb gaining revenge in the 2011 final.

While Nadal’s rivalry with colleague, Roger Federer may be considered as the most engaging, it is the Spaniard’s rivalry with Djokovic that is considered the most enduring.

Both tennis stars have a track record of the greatest matches ever seen including memorable Grand Slam finals and career-defining victories.

Spain’s Nadal and Serbia’s Djokovic have won 29 Grand Slam titles between them, including five previous victories at SW19.

The winner will play either John Isner or Kevin Anderson in Sunday’s final.
