Nadal Headed to Wimbledon Finals

Spain will have something else to look forward to, should its World Cup match not go as hoped on Saturday: Rafael Nadal is headed to the Wimbledon finals for the fourth time in his last four appearances. The world’s No. 1 player will be heavily favored against 12th-seeded Tomas Berdych, who beat No. 3 Novak Djokovic to advance. Nadal, for his part, dominated fourth-ranked Andy Murray in the semifinals, beating him 6-3, 7-6(9), 6-3. He last won Wimbledon in 2008 and had to miss last year’s tournament because of a bum knee.
