Serbia Open SEMIFINALS Highlights – Djokovic beats Khachanov: Novak Djokovic defeated Karen Khachanov from a set down for the third consecutive match on Saturday to complete a 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 win and reach the championship match at his hometown tournament for the third time.

Just like in his previous rounds against Laslo Djere and Miomir Kecmanovic, Djokovic made a slow start in the semi-final clash as Khachanov came out striking cleanly off both wings. Top-seeded Djokovic responded in style, arguably producing his best two sets of the week to storm back for a one-hour, 59-minute victory and extend his winning record in Serbia to 37-5.

“All three matches were key matches for me, to be honest,” said Djokovic in his post-match press conference. “Again I started not that great, losing the first set. I was a break down today as I was in the first two matches of the tournament. I think as soon as the second set started I was just feeling the ball and started swinging through particularly the backhand which wasn’t working in the first set.”

The win gives Djokovic the chance to pick up his maiden title in 2022 in front of his home fans on Sunday against World No. 8 Andrey Rublev. The Serb now holds a 13-2 match record at the Belgrade event and there were real signs on Saturday that he is finding his best form as he seeks to lift the trophy at the ATP 250 event for the third time.

“Playing at home with the unbelievable support from the crowd always gives me goosebumps and the motivation to play my best and fight until the end.”
