Defending champion Novak Djokovic has reached his sixth Wimbledon final, defeating Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut by three sets to one. 

The top seed was pushed hard at times in the match but prevailed 6-2 4-6 6-3 6-2 to set up a chance to land a fifth Wimbledon crown and a 16th Grand Slam success.

He'll play either Roger Federer or Rafa Nada in Sunday's decider at SW19.

"It's a dream come true, playing finals at Wimbledon is something different.

"I had to dig deep, he was not really overwhelmed with the stadium, the occasion - he played really well.

"It was very close in the third set - that's when the match was decided."

Asked whether he plans to watch the second semi-final, Djokovic said: "Of course! I'm a fan of that match-up as well.

"Federer v Nadal is one of the most epic rivalries of all time."
