New York: Novak Djokovic stormed into the semi-final of US Open 2018 Championship after defeating Australian John Millman 6-3 6-4 6-4 in the quarterfinals today.

The No. 6-seeded Djokovic struggled in the humidity but saved the break point he faced in the first set and wrapped the opener in an hour.

Djokovic broke early to take a 3-1 leave in the third set but a lapse in concentration allowed Millman to draw level.

Djokovic was given a time violation warning and double-faulted to offer Millman a break point opportunity before losing his first serve after running down the shot clock a second time.

A forehand error from Djokovic allowed Millman to level the game at 3-3 but the sixth seed carved out three break points in the next game, converting the third before serving out the match and grabbing the win with a backhand volley in two hours, 48 minutes.

Djokovic will face Japan’s Kei Nishikori in the US Open’s semi-final.
