The Wimbledon 2015 men’s final takes place on Sunday, with a match up between the top two ranked players in the world at the moment – Novak Djokovic vs Roger Federer. Djokovic has been in amazing form for the past few years, but Federer looked in as good form as he has ever been in when he majestically brushed Andy Murray aside in the semi-finals, meaning this final looks like it could be a classic. The Wimbledon 2015 Final has a scheduled start time of 2 p.m. BST (9 a.m. ET) from Centre Court at SW19, and can be watched online through free live stream via the link below.

If Federer can win today he will become the first ever player to won eight Wimbledon titles. He will have the majority of the crowd behind him, but will face a formidable opponent in reigning Wimbledon champion Djokovic.
Federer currently shares the record for the number of Wimbledon wins, level on seven with Pete Sampras, however, he will desperately want to make it eight today. If he can win the title for an eighth time today he will become the oldest Wimbledon winner in the current Open era of tennis.
This match is a repeat of the 2014 final, where Djokovic defeated Federer to claim his second Wimbledon title.
Head to head, 33-year-old Federer has won 17 Grand Slam titles compared to 8 for Djokovic. Although 28-year-old Djokovic has won more Grand Slams in recent years. These two players have fought one another 39 times before, with Federer winning 20 times, compared to Djokovic’s 19. But Djokovic has already defeated Federer twice this year and will be confident to make it three today.
But even though Djokovic has won more titles in the past few years, Federer has been in amazing form at this year’s Wimbledon, and at times has looked as good as he ever has done at SW19.
Through Federer’s six matches to get into the final, he has dropped just one set, and just one service game. In his spectacular performance against Britain’s Andy Murray in the semi-finals, Federer’s serve was near-impossible to compete with, and one of the best returners in the game was only able to get one break point against Federer – and even that only came in the first game of the match.
