I WAS hoping to settle down today to watch Andy Murray v Novak Djokovic in the men's singles final but an incredible display by Roger Federer on Centre Court on Friday put paid to that.

The king of Wimbledon turned back the clock with one of his best performances ever to win in straight sets and if he plays to the same high level he can see off world No.1 Djoko.

That's still a big if because it will be tough reaching that level again – and he will need to reach it to beat a player who turned him over in last year's final.

Djokovic won in five sets 12 months ago and you'd fancy him against the older man if it goes to the wire so Fed probably needs to win in three or four sets.

It's tough to call but I'm siding with Fed to become the oldest winner of the tournament in the Open era.

Djokovic is slight favourite at 10-11 with BetVictor and Coral but the market is moving Federer's way and he is now even with most firms.

    I’m thinking 3-0 or 3-1 Fed. But the impact of the weather is a tough one to read. it could end up playing a big part in who triumphs. Wind will flavour Djokovic. Rain breaks who can say. Roof closure would favour federer.

    Federer has the form edge. Since the start of Halle, he had held serve 116 service games in a row before Simon nicked one. he hasn’t been broken since. He will also have the crowd behind him. A fast Fed start and I make him the man to beat. If Novak can nick an early break things could get trickier for him quickly. And I expect Novak to try and do just that- to pile the pressure on return early.

    Sit back and enjoy people. We may never see a greater player in our time, and though I hope there are many miles left in the tank, this could be his swan song.

    I’ve just jumped on Federer at 2/1. If Djokovic makes a few mistakes he’s liable to put himself under pressure.

    I Tipped Novak and small bet Novak 3-1.

    Lets go.
