Djokovic reaches 10th Roland Garros semis

October 8, 2020

Paris: World number one Novak Djokovic recovered from dropping his first set at this year’s French Open and overcame a bothersome left arm, to defeat Pablo Carreno Busta and reach a 10th Roland Garros semi-final yesterday.

Djokovic beat Spanish 17th seed Carreno Busta 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the last four of a major for the 38th time as he chases a second French Open and 18th Grand Slam title. 

He will face Greek fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas on Friday for a place in the final.

Earlier, Stefanos Tsitsipas reached his second Grand Slam semi-final with a straight-sets win over Andrey Rublev at Roland Garros, setting up a potential clash with Djokovic for a place in the championship match.

The Greek fifth seed avenged last month’s loss to Rublev in the Hamburg final by defeating the Russian 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 to match his breakout run at the 2019 Australian Open.
