(MSN): Roger Federer advanced to his record eighth Wimbledon final on Friday, beating defending champion Novak Djokovic in four sets.

The six-time champion defeated Djokovic 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 under a closed roof on Centre Court and is one victory from equaling two other records in an already record-laden career.

"This is what you want to be playing for - the Wimbledon trophy," Federer said. "I've got a tough task ahead of me."

f Federer beats either Andy Murray or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Sunday's final, he will equal Pete Sampras' record of seven Wimbledon titles, a mark he shares with 1880s player William Renshaw. He would also take over the No. 1 ranking from Djokovic and equal Sampras' record of 286 weeks as the top-ranked player.
