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.

  Roger Federer Novak Djokovic
Head to Head wins 18 16
Grand Slams won 17 6
Wimbledon titles 7 1
Sets lost this championship 1 4
Head to head at Wimbledon 1 (2012 semifinals) 0
2014 Head to head record 2 1
Grand Slam wins since 2013 0 1
Head to head in Grand Slam finals 1 ('07 U.S. Open) 0
2014 ATP wins 2 3

The match kicks off at 9 AM ET on ESPN, and it's expected to be a pretty epic match between these two, who last met in a Grand Slam during the semifinals of Wimbledon in 2012, with Federer taking Djokovic out in four sets.
