LONDON -There's a marquee match-up on tap in the men's semifinals at Wimbledon.

Defending champ Novak Djokovic will take on six-time winner Roger Federer for a spot in the title match.

Djokovic advances with a 6-4, 6-1, 6-4 victory over 31st-ranked Florian Mayer, while Federer rolled over Mikhail Youzhny 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.

The 16-time Grand Slam champion from Switzerland has a 14-12 edge in head-to-head meetings with Djokovic.

They've met in Grand Slam semifinals five times in the past two years, with Djokovic winning four of those matches.

Also reaching the semifinals were fourth-seed Andy Murray and No. 5 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Murray is trying to become the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.
