 ROGER FEDERER   v  JONAS BJORKMAN

6-2 6-0 6-2

 

Roger Federer made short work of Swedish veteran Jonas Bjorkman to reach his fourth straight Wimbledon final.

World number one Federer, 24, took just one hour and 17 minutes to wrap up a 6-2 6-0 6-2 win on Centre Court

"I felt like I played a guy who was near as perfection as you can play the game," said the Swede. "He just made it look so easy.

"I had the best seat in the house in a way.

"He doesn't get enough credit for his serve - everyone talks about everything else he's got, but his serve is very effective and he has the same toss in every serve more or less - that's why he's so hard to read.

"He hits the spots really well with good spin and a mix-up, and that's what makes it so hard on grass against him."

The result extended Federer's Open era record grass-court winning streak to 47 in the most one-sided men's semi-final at Wimbledon since the tournament adopted its current format in 1922.

"I was flawless," Federer added. "I had high expectations to win this match. And then to come through and play at the level I did, that's great."
