Djokovic, despite his superior ranking against Pospisil, couldn’t break his opponent as both the players won six service games each to take it into the tie-breaker. He led the tie-breaker 5-2 but Pospisil made a good comeback to level it 5-5. Djokovic however managed to win the next two points to win the first set.

In the second set, Djokovic broke Pospisil’s first service game and took a 3-0 lead in the contest. However, Popisil made a comeback in the contest by breaking Djokovic’s serve and levelled the scores 3-3. Leading 4-3, Djokovic then broke Pospisil yet again and served out to seal the match and advanced to the semifinal.  With his victory, Djokovic has improved to 6-0 in their Head2Head series, having won all 13 sets they have played.

“It was a great, positive win,” Djokovic said in his on-court interview. “Vasek is one of my best friends on the Tour. We have known each other for many years. It is never easy playing someone you respect so much and like so much, but we are both professionals and wanted to win the match and you can see that.

“I think the level of tennis was really high. Especially towards the end of the first set and the second set. Credit to him for fighting. Great to see him back.”
