With the win, the 32-year-old now has reached the semi-finals of six out of eight tournaments he has played this season. Serbian Djokovic continues to pursue his fourth tour-level title of the season.

“I saw him play a couple of days ago against Nishioka and he was playing really well. I took away the time from him.

Just overall, a really flawless performance,” said Djokovic highlighting what made him overcome the outstanding Pouille in the quarter-finals.
