Federer vs. Djokovic: Scores, Highlights from French Open 2012 Semifinals
He will move on to his first-ever French Open final, where he'll meet a familiar foe in Rafael Nadal, who cruised in his semifinal bout in straight sets.
It was my second day of covering tennis so once again I'd like to thank everyone who followed. It was a pleasure bringing you the action. I'll be back tomorrow with a live blog of the women's final for anyone who would like to join me. Also, I'll be live blogging the Belmont Stakes later in the day if you're interested in that as well. Hopefully we cross paths again tomorrow.
