Will Novak Djokovic Win Wimbledon 2012?

Novak Djokovic made his way into the semifinals of Wimbledon with a straight sets win over the No. 31 seed Florian Mayer.

The Serb won 6-4,6-1, 6-4 to set up a mouth-watering clash with Roger Federer.

The defending champion will be most people's pick to progress. He destroyed Roger in straight sets at the same stage in last month's French Open—but this is Wimbledon.

Could Federer summon up one last superhuman best-of-five-set performance and overcome the current world No. 1?

If ever the GOAT needed extra motivation, consider this:

A Wimbledon victory would see him return to the World No. 1 spot after an absence of more than two years.

It would equal Pete Sampras' record of seven Wimbledon titles and 286 weeks as the world's top-ranked player, almost certainly overtaking the American the next week.

But is it going to happen? 

Even if he gets through he'll still have one more match to win to claim the title.

For me it's Nole who'll be on centre court 2pm, GMT Sunday.
