Britain’s Andy Murray defeated second seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets Friday to reach the final of the Olympic tennis tournament.

It sets up a tantalizing rematch against Roger Federer, who came out on top in the Wimbledon final just three weeks ago.

The two sets panned out identically, going with serve until Murray broke 6-5 up to win 7-5, 7-5.

Federer scraped into the final courtesy of a marathon win over Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina earlier in the day.

The epic third set of their semifinal lasted for 36 games until Federer converted his second match point for a 3-6, 7-6(5), 19-17 win.

The final is Sunday.
