Djokovic on course

Afp
Thursday, June 05, 2014

PARIS - Novak Djokovic has stayed firmly on course to win his first French Open title after he tamed big serving Canadian Milos Raonic 7-5, 7-6 (7), 6-4 to reach the semi-finals.

The Serb world number two is only missing the Roland Garros trophy to complete his Grand Slam set but he moved closer towards his dream yesterday behind the back of an excellent return of serve.

The 27-year-old from Belgrade reached his sixth semifinal in Paris, the third best tally in the Open era, as he made it three wins out of three against Raonic, following Rome in May and a Davis Cup semi-final in 2013.

He will now play 18th seed Ernests Gulbis for a place in the final after the Latvian eliminated Czech Republic sixth seed Tomas Berdych.
