The four-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer will make his first appearance in the final match of his career in London on Friday, with Rafael Nadal – the world No 1 – also set to play.
The men’s Wimbledon singles final, which will be played at The All England Club on Centre Court is also the most dramatic of the four final matches of the season so far.

However, the four-time Wimbledon champion’s appearance is the most dramatic of the four final matches this season, with the match against No 1 Nadal the biggest in Federer’s career.
Both men have previously won the tournament in the previous two years, but this year, Nadal arrives in the match after serving his two-year ban for a ‘serious violation of the sport’ clause.
