Roger Federer became the first man to reach eight Wimbledon singles finals, knocking out defending champion Novak Djokovic in just over two hours on Friday. Federer, the third seed, progressed to his 24th Grand Slam final with a 6-3 3-6 6-4 6-3 victory. It will be Federer's first Grand Slam final since last year's French Open, and his first at Wimbledon since he won his sixth title in 2009. He will face off against Briton Andy Murray, who defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in four sets to become the first British man to reach a Wimbledon final in 74 years.
