Serbia’s flag bearer Novak Djokovic advanced into the semi-final of the London Olympics on Thursday after registering a straight sets 6-1 7-5 victory over the top Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Djokovic did not allow Tsonga to make a comeback after winning the first set and earned the breakthrough just at the right time in the second-set to win this hugely anticipated encounter in 1 hour and 20 minutes.
The Serbian served really well, as he mustered 75% points on his first serve with the help of 22 winners and stayed on course with the help of his swift court movement and precision-oriented shots.
Just after 32 minutes of play, Djokovic claimed the first set. The Serbian made the most of the given opportunities and did not allow Tsonga to settle down at any stage of the first set. The Serbian earned 74% points on his first set and also converted all the break-points to surge through.
Tsonga broke the Serbian early on in the second-set, but then Djokovic broke back. And, then he got the decisive breakthrough in the eleventh game to surge through. In the semi-final, Djokovic will take on Andy Murray of Great Britain, who beat Nicolas Almagro of Spain in another quarterfinal – earlier in the day.
