Novak Djokovic into semi finals of the French Open

Novak Djokovic in through into the semi finals of the French Open after taming the feisty Milos Ranoic and seems all set to bag the title of the tournament. Djokovic at present is number 2 in world and won the match against Ranoic with the score 7-5 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 and finally made it to the semi finals.

This season would be the 22th semi final and 6th Roland Garros for Djokovic. He will be facing off Ernest Gulbis of Latvia in the semi finals.  If he bags the final title on Sunday, he would be the 8th man to go down in history to have completed the Grand Slam career.

The twenty seven year old had quite the journey to the semifinals where he took on Joao Sousa in the first round with the score 6-1 6-2 6-4, while the score in the 2nd round was6-1 6-4 6-2 against Jeremy Chardy. The 3rd round was great as well where he faced off Marin Cilic with a score of 6-3 6-2 6-7 (2-7) 6-4. The 4th and the quarter finals were against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Milos Raonic with the score of 6-1 6-4 6-1 and 7-5 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 respectively.

Talking about his upcoming semifinals, Djokovic commented that he prefers to keep his focus only on the upcoming match and not think much about the finals. This helps to keep him focused. All he wishes to think about at present is Gulbis, since he is playing quite well of late and seems most confident.

The twenty seven year old further added that although Gulbis is playing well but he will still take his chances since he has had a great past few weeks. Couple of days off might just work more in his favor and will help him recover and concentrate on his practice.
