Andy Roddick will face Roger Federer in Sunday's Wimbledon final after a hard-fought victory over Mario Ancic on Saturday. Roddick recovered from losing the second set when play resumed on court one to record a 6-4 4-6 7-5 7-5 semi-final win over the unseeded Croatian.

The second seeded American had been up a set but was facing break point when the match was stopped on Friday night after a rain-disrupted day.

Ancic returned to win it and the second set and looked in control in the third when there was another stoppage.

But Roddick claimed the crucial break and, after another tight fourth set, went ahead 6-5 and served out to win.

"He was making it tough in the last game so there's a lot of relief," said the 21-year-old.

"He came out firing today but later I was able to make some adjustments and made it through."

And, looking forward to the final against Roger Federer, he added: "I'm so excited. He's the best and I can't wait."
