Wimbledon 2019: Semi-final stats, head-to-head records and odds ahead of Rafael Nadal v Roger Federer & Novak Djokovic v Roberto Bautista Agut

Who will book their place in the Wimbledon final?

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roberto Bautista Agut will contest the Wimbledon semi-finals. Here's all you need to know including stats and head-to-head records.

So the 'Big Three' have pretty much waltzed their way into the semi-finals for the second Grand Slam in a row although this is the first time it's happened at Wimbledon since 2007.

You may have thought it would be a more common occurrence than it actually is, because before last month's French Open the legendary trio hadn't all reached the last four at any Grand Slam for seven years.

For it to happen twice in succession when they are a combined age of 102 (Federer 37, Nadal 33, Djokovic 32) just underlines the incredible timeless talents they all progress, and you'd expect one of them to make it a 54th Grand Slam between them out of a possible 65 since 2003.

Then again, 300/1 pre-tournament outsider Roberto Bautista Agut may have other ideas although the fact he'd originally booked his stag do in Ibiza for this weekend shows how much he backed himself!

The 31-year-old Spaniard had never previously gone beyond the fourth round at Wimbledon and back in January reached his first ever Grand Slam quarter-final in Australia, but he's played very well this fortnight, dropping just one set.

Below, we'll go through both semi-finals, including head-to-head records, Grand Slam statistics and their routes to get here.

Novak Djokovic v Roberto Bautista Agut

Nobody will need to look at the latest odds to know that Novak Djokovic is a red-hot favourite to reach his sixth Wimbledon final in the last nine years as he chases his fifth title and second in succession.

The 15-time Grand Slam champion has been in imperious form - not least against David Goffin during a one-sided semi-final - and now only Roger Federer and Jimmy Connors have reached the last four at SW19 on more occasions in men's singles.

Roberto Bautista Agut, ranked 22 in the world, is not a man known for performing well on the grass and this is the first year he's gone beyond the fourth round here in six appearances.

Nevertheless, this is clearly the 31-year-old's finest season having reached his first Grand Slam quarter-final in Australia at the start of the year while he's only dropped one set over the past fortnight.

Interestingly, although he's lost seven of their 10 meetings, he has won three of their last five including the most recent two matches which were both on hard courts in Miami and Doha this year.

Rafael Nadal v Roger Federer

This mouthwatering semi-final clash will be the 40th meeting between the two over a 15-year period although it's the first time they've played each other at Wimbledon since that historic 2008 final.

Nadal's victory over Federer in arguably the greatest match of all time was the third year in a row they had played each other in the final at SW19, with the Swiss winning the previous two.

The Spaniard went on to win a second title in 2010 but hasn't been in the final since when he was runner-up to Novak Djokovic in 2011, while Federer became the first man to lift the trophy eight times here when he defeated Marin Cilic in 2017.
