The 2010 Wimbledon men's finals are set as Tomas Berdych will face Rafael Nadal this Sunday in the men's finals. Berdych continued his winning ways on Friday, this time upending Novak Djokovic, ranked third in the world, 6-3 7-6 (11-9) 6-3. The 12th-ranked Berdych continued his Wimbledon dominance en route to the finals, fresh off his 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 victory over world number two-ranked Roger Federer this past Wednesday. This will mark the first time in 23 years that a Czech has made the Wimbledon finals since Ivan Lendl.
Berdych awaited the outcome of the Rafael Nadal versus Andy Murray match, as Nadal defeated the hometown favorite Murray, 6-4, 7-6 (6), 6-4 in straight sets. Nadal is in pursuit of his second Wimbledon title and eighth Grand Slam championship in the finals on Sunday.
Murray was attempting to become the first Brit to win the Wimbledon title since 1936 when Fred Perry took home the crown. After Perry on the men's side, Britian has suffered nine losses in the Wimbledon semifinals since Henry “Bunny” Austin lost to American Don Budge in the 1938 finals.
Nadal will be appearing in his fourth Wimbledon final in five years. He won the event last in 2008 and missed last year's event due to injury.
