Wimbledon 2019: Order of play for Friday – day 11 featuring Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic vs Roberto Bautista Agut

The men’s singles semi-finals get underway on the 11th day of this year’s Wimbledon Championships.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic kicks off proceedings on Centre Court where he takes on Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut.

The Serbian is expected to reach the sixth Wimbledon final of his career.

It’s anyone’s guess for the second semi-final of the day: Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer. The two men are meeting for the first time here at the All England Club since that iconic 2008 final, won by Nadal.

They both head into their clash in top form, having cruised their way through the Championships.

Novak Djokovic, speaking to the BBC:

“To be in another final is a dream come true. I will definitely enjoy this experience.”

“Roberto wasn’t overwhelmed, he played really well. He placed his serves nicely and opened up the points. I got a bit tight, and the first 4/5 games of the third set were very tight. That’s where the match could have turned, and luckily it went my way

“Of course I will watch it! I’m a fan of that match-up, Federer-Nadal is one of the most epic rivalries of all time!”
