As is so often the case, the final of Wimbledon this year pits two men against each other in very fine form.
The way in which Roger Federer dismantled Andy Murray in the semi-final showed age doesn't matter when it comes to winning major championships.
The Swiss has truly earned his place in the championship match-up after some remarkable performances that have yet to see him being broken.

The tournament has been yet another display of his timeless ability to out-think his opponent and wear them down with outstanding decision-making.
Now he is homing in on a record-breaking eighth Wimbledon title.
Djokovic on fire
Like-wise, the Serbian finalist on the other side of the net barely blinked an eye in his walkover of Richard Gasquet. Novak Djokovic has breezed through each stage in robotic fashion, making his competitors appear distinctly average in comparison.
All of this serves up the potential for a fantastic show-down between arguably the two greats of tennis in the current era. Both are in great form on grass and both have multiple Wimbledon titles to their name.
Federer's final hurrah?
As they are so evenly matched in terms of their experience, ability and form, the winner will ultimately come down to who wants it most.
This is where Roger Federer seems the more likely. Will he ever get another chance to win this tournament and surpass Pete Sampras as the record holder of Wimbledon championships? Can he prove that he has what it takes to be the best ever?
Beating Djokovic in his prime would be verification that the 33-year-old is not past it, and still possesses what made him great in the first place.
Whatever the case, this occasion seems certain to provoke fireworks, because for either man to win would require a performance of the very highest level.
