Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal: Time, TV channel, live stream for 2019 Wimbledon men's semifinals

Sporting News — (Thomas Schlarp)

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are set to meet again at Centre Court for the 2019 Wimbledon semifinal over 10 years since the duo last met in an epic five-hour, five-set, 2008 final. Nadal defeated Federer in the classic to win his first Wimbledon championship.

Despite the lapse in time, not much has changed among the top of men's tennis. Nadal, Federer and Novak Djokovic —  who is seeded No. 1 and plays No. 23 Roberto Bautista Agut in Friday's other semi — have combined to win 53 of the last 64 major championships, including the 14 of the last 16 at Wimbledon.

No. 3 Nadal is second among men with 18 Grand Slam titles and beat Sam Querrey 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 in his respective quarterfinal.

This will be the 40th time that Nadal and Federer have met on tour, with Nadal holding a 25-14 all-time advantage and a 10-3 edge at majors. Federer has beaten Nadal in two of their three showdowns on the grass courts of Wimbledon. Nadal most recently beat Federer at the 2019 French Open in straight sets to reach the final.
