Novak Djokovic will get his chance to defend his 2018 Wimbledon title after defeating No. 23 Roberto Bautista Agut (6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2) in the first men's singles semifinal on Friday.

Djokovic won 56-of-73 (76.7 percent) of his first-serve points and 21-of-41 (51.2 percent) on his second serve. In the return game, he took 41-of-106 (38.7 percent) of his receiving points for an all-around edge over the Spaniard.

The win snaps Djokovic's two-match losing streak against Bautista Agut and continues his most recent run of dominance at the world's top tennis tournaments. Dating back to last year's Wimbledon run, the 32-year-old boasts a 31-1 record, with his lone loss coming at the French Open semifinal earlier this year.

Next, the world No. 1 will face No. 3 Roger Federer on Sunday with the title on the line. The Swiss legend will look to avenge a pair of previous defeats, having lost to Djokovic in the final match in 2014 and 2015.
