The tennis headlines are all about two things at the moment. The first, of course, is Serena Williams' magnificent achievement at Wimbledon today. By winning yet another title she completed the Serena Slam for the second time, and if she defends her US Open title later this year she will become only the second female tennis player ever to hold all four Grand Slam titles in one year, equalling Steffi Graf's 1988 record as well as equalling her all-time record of 22 Grand Slam titles.
That's a story for another day, though. Because the other thing concerning tennis writers right now is the Men's Singles Final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, taking place tomorrow afternoon and no doubt drawing a packed audience of ticket holders and television viewers.
It will undoubtedly be a sight to behold. The world's two best male tennis players going head to head, just as they did last year, to try and add another title to their collection. For Roger Federer in particular, it could be a very special day indeed.
He currently shares the record for the number of Wimbledon titles with Pete Sampras, both players having won seven. Another title would give him the record outright, as well as making him the oldest male Wimbledon winner in the Open era and near enough confirming him as the greatest male tennis player of all time.
Given his form so far this tournament he has every chance of pulling it off. His serving has been extraordinary, so good in fact that Andy Murray even managed to get 73% of his own first serves in and still lost the semi final in straight sets. For all that he's not getting younger, Federer has arguably never been better, and the best place to back him is at ToteSport, who are offering odds of 11/10.
That said, Djokovic is no pushover. Along with Nadal and Federer, Djokovic has dominated tennis in this century, and his route to the final was no less convincing than Federer's. He triumphed against the Swiss here last year and we see no reason why he couldn't do it again. The best place to back him is at Coral, who are giving a reasonably decent 5/6.
All in all though, our feeling is that Federer is playing better than this time last year. Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are the two best returners of serve in the game, and Federer has already brushed one of them aside without looking troubled.
A straight sets victory over Djokovic seems unlikely, but Federer has only dropped one set since the tournament began. If you want to back it you can get a three sets to love victory for Federer at a market leading 27/5 at 888Sport. However, we fancy Federer to win by three sets to one, and the best place to back that is at BoyleSports, who are offering an appealing 9/2.
