Federer, Murray, Sharapova, and Serena All in the Finals

Less than a month ago, Roger Federer defeated Andy Murray at Centre Court at Wimbledon to win his 17th grand slam. Murray will get a chance to replay that match for a Gold Medal with the backing of the British fans.

Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in the semifinals, 7-5, 7-5, with a ruckus Wimbledon crowd in the stands, and a huge following outside of the building.

The road for Federer was much tougher, defeating Juan Martin del Potro in a match that lasted nearly four and a half hours. The final set alone took over two hours. Federer advanced 3-6, 7-6 (5), 19-17. Luckily for Federer, he wll get a day off Saturday before taking on Murray for the gold.

The women will see the match up most wanted to see in the finals. Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova both won their semifinal matches in two sets and will meet for the gold medal. Sharapova defeated Williams in the Wimbledon finals in 2004.
