Djokovic in US Open semis
World number 1 Novak Djokovic booked his place in the semi-finals of the 2015 US Open with a win over Feliciano Lopez.
Djokovic’s match took second stage to the showdown between the Williams sister, with the Wimbledon winner winning his 16-ranked matchup in 2 hours and 39 minutes.
“Look, he’s one of the rare players that serves and volleys off the first serve,” Djokovic said of Lopez afterward. “It was anybody’s game in the fourth set. He had a couple of break points. I played pretty good, very consistent. Very glad to get through in four.
“Obviously, it was frustrating at times, but this was quarterfinals of a Grand Slam. This is what you expect.”
Defending US Open champion Marin Cilic beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in his own quarter final match, and will face Djokovic in the semi-final.
