 Djokovic def. Del Potro 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-7 (6-8), 6-3

No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic won the longest gentlemen's semifinal match in Wimbledon history on Friday afternoon on Center Court.

Djokovic needed five sets to dispense of No. 8 Juan Martin Del Potro in a match that can only be described as one for the ages.

The Serbian had a chance to close the match out in the fourth set tiebreak but Del Potro rallied back to win four consecutive points to force a fifth set.

In the fifth set, Djokovic earned a crucial break up 4-3 to provide him with a chance to win the match on his own serve.

Djokovic will now face the winner of the match between No. 2 Andy Murray and No. 23 Jerzy Janowicz in Sunday's final.
