On Sunday afternoon, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic will face off on Centre Court at Wimbledon for a chance at the 2014 title. Federer is already heralded as one of the greatest tennis players ever, while Djokovic has a chance to take a step closer to joining that argument with a second Wimbledon title. While it's a toss-up at this point with who will win, we take a closer look at their numbers over the years and the road they've had to this championship.
