Djokovic reaches Wimbledon men's final

Novak Djokovic of Serbia fended off a furious comeback Friday by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France to advance to the men's singles Wimbledon tennis final.

No. 2 seed Djokovic defeated No. 12 Tsonga 7-6, 6-2, 6-7, 6-3 to reach the final for the first time.

Tsonga fought off two match points in the third set to win a tie-breaker before succumbing to Djokovic's steady game in the fourth.

Djokovic on Sunday will meet the winner of this afternoon's match between defending champion and No. 1 seed Rafael Nadal of Spain and local favorite No. 4 Andy Murray of England.
