LONDON -- Novak Djokovic beat Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (7) to reach the Wimbledon final for the third time in four years.

The top-seeded Djokovic overcame the loss of five straight games in the second set, seized control with a more aggressive game and took advantage of a slew of double faults by Dimitrov -- including three in a row in the third game of the final set and one in the final tiebreaker.

Djokovic, the 2011 champion and runner-up last year, advanced to his 14th Grand Slam final -- and 10th in his last 13 majors.

He will face the winner of the other semifinal between seven-time champion Roger Federer and big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic.

The 11th-seeded Dimitrov came in with a 10-match winning streak.
