If you haven’t been glued to the tennis action at Wimbledon the past week and a half, tomorrow is a great place to start.No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who has won three of the last four Grand Slams, will meet No. 3 Roger Federer, who is seeking his seventh Wimbledon title, for a spot in the men’s final Sunday.

The two players have never met before on grass, though Federer holds a 14-12 edge in all-time meetings with Djokovic. The two have met in six of the last eight Grand Slam semifinals, with Djokovic winning four times.

In the other semifinal, which will likely be agonizing for all those in attendance, Scot Andy Murray can become the first Brit to advance to the Wimbledon final since 1938. A Brit hasn’t won Wimbledon since 1936.

Murray will play Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who took advantage of Rafael Nadal’s shocking loss and advanced out of a wide-open section of the draw.

Murray, the No. 4 player in the world, is the favourite to win and advance. He’s got a 5-1 record against Tsonga, and has won both meetings in Grand Slam events. Plus, he’ll have a rabid home crowd behind him on Centre Court.

Djokovic-Federer is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. local time, which is 8:00 a.m. EDT., on ESPN.
