WIMBLEDON: Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will meet in another Grand Slam final.

Four-time defending champion Federer reached his ninth consecutive major final on Saturday beating Richard Gasquet on the grass courts of the All England Club.

“It has become sort of a routine, but I’m still so excited to be back in the final,” said Federer, who beat Nadal to win last year’s title but lost to the Spaniard in the last two French Open finals. Nadal set up a rematch at Wimbledon when No. 4 Novak Djokovic withdrew midway through the third set.

‘Tough one’

“I’m going to have a very difficult match on Sunday, but I’m going to try my best,” said Nadal, a three-time champion at Roland Garros.

Federer’s win was his 53rd straight on grass.He finished with 20 aces, including one on a second serve in the final game of the match. — AP
