Novak Djokovic has a date with destiny when he steps out on Centre Court in the Wimbledon men’s singles final.

The world number one and defending champion faces Italy’s Matteo Berrettini as he bids to win a record-equalling 20th grand slam title.

Victory would bring him level with long-time rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

Berrettini is in his first grand slam final, but the seventh seed’s booming serve and destructive forehand make him a dangerous opponent.

Here, the PA news agency looks ahead to day 14 at Wimbledon.
