- Wimbledon, Day 13
Fed: I love tackling the home hero
Murray has become the first British man to reach the men's singles final since Bunny Austin in 1938, and standing in his way is Federer, who has won Wimbledon six times, most recently in 2009.
The Scot achieved a formidable level as he dismissed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the last four - but Federer insists the prospect of of facing the world No. 4 does not fill him with fear.
"Of course I'd love to play Murray," Federer said. "I always say in whatever country I'm in, I like to play the local hero. Andy is exactly that here. So I wanted this to come along, even though I like Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
"It's a big match for me and I hope I can keep my nerves. I'm sure [that] if I can, I have a chance to win and become world No. 1 again. But I'm aware the tournament is not over yet. I didn't break down crying or think, 'I've achieved everything I ever wanted'."
Federer will reclaim the world No. 1 ranking from Novak Djokovic if he defeats Murray.
