Djokovic advances to Wimbledon semi-finals

The Serbian Novak Djokovic, number one in the world, was inflexible this Wednesday against the Croatian Marin Cilic, seeded number nine at Wimbledon, and continued forward in his title defense in London (6-4, 6-4 and 6- 4, in one hour and 49 minutes).
Djokovic has cruised almost effortlessly into the semi-finals at the All England Tennis Club for the sixth consecutive year and will battle for a place in the final with the winner of Switzerland’s Stanislas Wawrinka and France’s Richard Gasquet.
The Serb, who survived a grueling quarterfinal match against South African Kevin Anderson, who went to five sets over two days (6-7(6), 6-7(6), 6-1 , 6-4 and 7-5), he has not noticed the tiredness and this Wednesday he has once again brought out his best tennis on the center court at Wimbledon.
“It was a very solid game. I think I played very well after five sets with Kevin. I didn’t know how my body was going to react, but it did well. I quickly broke Marin’s service and tactically I did well,” Djokovic said when interviewed after the match.
The Serbian, who has reached his twenty-seventh Grand Slam semifinal, aspires to win his third Wimbledon – he won the title in 2011 and 2014 – and to get rid of the bad taste in his mouth left by the last Roland Garros, in which he lost the final against prognosis against Wawrinka.
“I am happy to have reached this round. It’s something you have to earn. Some Grand Slam semi-finals are coming up and both Wawrinka, who beat me at Roland Garros and in Australia, and Gasquet, one of the most talented tennis players on the circuit, will be a very difficult opponent,” said the Serb.
