Federer, Nadal in Wimbledon final

It's Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal in another Grand Slam final.

Federer, hitting breathtaking winners from all parts of the court, overwhelmed Sweden's Jonas Bjorkman 6-2, 6-0, 6-2 in 77 minutes Saturday to close in on his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title.

With the loss of only four games by Federer, it was the most one-sided men's semifinal at Wimbledon since the tournament adopted its current format in 1922.

Nadal, the two-time French Open champion, continued his stunning run on grass by beating Marcos Baghdatis, 6-1, 7-5, 6-3 to reach his first Wimbledon championship.

Nadal has beaten Federer in four finals this year, including at the French Open last month, and has a 6-1 career edge. Federer is 54-0 against all other players this year.

The 20-year-old Nadal is bidding to become the first Spaniard to win the title here since Manolo Santana in 1966, and the first player to win the French and Wimbledon in the same year since Bjorn Borg in 1980.

It's the first time since 1952 that the same players have reached back-to-back finals at the French Open and Wimbledon, reports AP.
