Federer-Djokovic XXXII: Dubai 2014 Semifinals

For the 32nd time in their careers, the 17-time major champion Roger Federer will face 6-time major champion Novak Djokovic. Federer sports a slight 16-15 head-to-head lead overall and a 12-11 lead in hard court matches. However, Djokovic has won both times they played in 2013, which it must be remarked was one of Federer's worst years on tour. If he is able to acquit himself well against Djokovic at a tournament he has won 5 times before, the G.O.A.T's 2014 will definitely start looking promising.

The winner of the blockbuster semifinal between Djokovic and Federer will likely face Tomas Berdych, who beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in his quarterfinal and will probably beat Philipp Kohlschreiber in his semifinal. Last year Djokovic beat Berdych in straight sets to win the title.

Different final this year with Fed providing a major comeback to win the semi-final in 3 sets, with Novak looking somewhat out of sorts.
Tomas won 7-5, 7-5.
