Djokovic tops Air K to reach semifinals

Milos Raonic

Novak Djokovic claims he was treated unfairly by chair umpire Carlos Ramos during his quarter-final win over Kei Nishikori to book his spot in the final four at Wimbledon.

Three time victor Novak Djokovic returned to a Grand Slam semi-final for the first time since the 2016 U.S. Open, beating Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2.

Kei Nishikori became the first Japanese man in 23 years to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals on Monday and then predicted a "war" with Novak Djokovic to get to the last four.

It was performance of resilience and resolve from the former number one, reminiscent of the player who held all four Grand Slam titles two years ago. "I had a couple of chances, but he played a good full game".

"Also psychologically obviously, I was so fortunate to have so much success on the tour over the course of 10-plus years".

After racing through the first set, Djokovic was handed his first code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct after bouncing his racquet into the grass in frustration at squandering three break points in the third game of the second set. "I don't like that", he said.

But the Argentine broke back immediately with a volley and then saved another break point at 5-5 with an ace.

Djokovic now awaits Rafael Nadal or Juan Martin del Potro and on Friday will contest his first All England Club semi-final since 2015. "I think it was great quality tennis and in the final set there were some fantastic points", said Nadal who was a 7-5 6-7 4-6 6-4 6-4 victor.

Nishikori still would not fade and he forced Djokovic to go long for an early break in the fourth, but that advantage was swiftly cancelled out following another fine rally.

"I was really glad to play Queen's and to get five matches there".

This is a 32nd Grand Slam semi-final appearance for Djokovic, although there was some doubt he would reach that mark.

For the only the second time at Wimbledon, Federer was beaten after holding a two-set lead, with his previous loss from that position coming against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 2011 quarterfinals. "From the second, it got better and I just tried to stay calm and fight every game". I don't want to stop here. "In the midst of emotions in a tough match, it happens".

"It took me two or three months and that was frustrating that I wasn't able to perform the game that I was used to and the level of tennis I wanted to play".

"I had moments where I was great, I felt like I was reading his serve, other moments where I don't know where the hell I was moving to".
