Djokovic Into Semis At Cincinnati


Novak Djokovic claimed victory twice on Friday to advance to the semifinals of the Western & Southern Open at Mason, Ohio.

The 10th-seeded Serbian first finished his rain-delayed third-round match against fifth-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 triumph, before ousting Canadian Milos Raonic 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 in 2 hours, 29 minutes in the quarterfinals.

Rain wreaked havoc on Thursday’s schedule, leading to several players having to take the court twice on Friday. That includes fifth-seeded Argentine Juan Martin del Potro and second-seeded Swiss Roger Federer, who will each play their quarterfinal matches later Friday.
