No. 1 Novak Djokovic def. No. 11 Grigor Dimitrov, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (9-7)

It wasn't easy, but No. 1 Novak Djokovic advanced to the Wimbledon final with a four-set win over Grigor Dimitrov. 

Djokovic fought off three set points in the fourth-set tiebreak to win 9-7, and continue his search for his second Wimbledon title.

The top-seeded Serbian won the first set in 26 minutes, but he then encountered a challenge from the Bulgarian, who broke Djokovic twice in the second set. 

The third and fourth sets presented a fight for Djokovic, but he ultimately prevailed in a match that saw plenty of momentum swings and bad shots. 

Djokovic will face the winner of the match between Roger Federer and Milos Raonic on Sunday in the final.
