    Nole is through to his fifth career US Open semi-finals! Top-seeded Novak Djokovic came through his toughest test so far at Flushing Meadows on Thursday, winning his quarter-final match against fellow Serbian and world no.20 Janko Tipsarevic. Nole was leading 7-6(2), 6-7(3), 6-0, 3-0 when Janko decided to retire due to injury after 3 hours and 27 minutes. "Congratulations to Janko for a fantastic tournament and a great effort today," Nole said in his oncourt interview. "He's a great friend of mine and it was not easy to play against him today. I sensed when I made a break in the third set that he lost a lot of pace on his first serve and was not able to move so well." Match statistics: aces (8-10), double faults (2-5), winners (36-40), unforced errors (41-64). Next up for Nole is a five-time champion and world no.3 Roger Federer.

    Djokovic beat no.23 Alexandr Dolgopolov with a 7-6 (14), 6-4, 6-2 in 2 hours and 26 minutes. "After the first set, it was a kind of a turning point," Nole said after his 61st win of the season. "I was confused on the court in the first set with the wind and the low balls he was hitting. I raised my level in the next two sets. He's an unpredictable player. He feeds on the energy of the crowd. The bigger the match is, he feels better - gets motivated. I knew in the back of my mind, I knew I needed to hang in there and wait for the opportunities. After the first set I knew I had a little bit of a mental edge over him. Mental strength you get over the years by playing on the tour and getting that experience." Match statistics: aces (2-5), double faults (3-5), winners (13-25), unforced errors (25-44), total points won (111-88).

    World #1 Novak Djokovic beat Nikolay Davydenko 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 in 2 hours and 7 minutes. "I had some ups and downs in my match today" said Novak. "But it's the first test I've had this tournament and it was expected.I was aware of his quality.Davydenko is a great player,he knows how to play majors.He went out there and played his game,very aggressive.I think I was a little bit too defensive at the start and that's why I was missing a lot of balls from the forehand side.But when I needed to adjust I did and I got crucial breaks each set.The third set was better." Match statistics: aces (4-1), double faults (0-2), winners (17-18), unforced errors (22-32). The Serb now has a remarkable 60-2 win-loss record. Novak will next face no.22 seed Aleksandr Dolgopolov, whom he has never met before.

"The first two sets were ideal," said Novak. "I could not play better. I was getting a lot of balls back, I was ending the points when I needed to. I was making a lot of winners. My serve was okay, and my return was great. I felt fantastic out on the court. There's not much I can say when everything just seems fun and enjoyable out there. I played good tennis, tried to win. On the other hand, we tried to engage the crowd. It was nice. A lot of entertainment. Long, attractive points, the through-the-leg shot and things like that. It was a really, really good third set.” Match statistics: aces (5-2), double faults (0-6), winners (31-11), unforced errors (15-26). Djokovic will face Nikolay Davydenko for a place in the last 16.

    Nole is through to the second round of the US Open after only 44 minutes spent on Arthur Ashe Stadium. Irish qualifier Conor Niland decided to retire while Novak was leading 6-0, 5-1. The world no.1, who has nine titles to his name in 2011, is looking to win his third Grand Slam title of what has been a remarkable season. His record now is 58-2. About his shoulder injury, Nole said: “After Cincinnati I took some time off, and I did everything in order to recover the shoulder. Today I didn't feel any pain. I served well and I played well, so I have no concern. I think I've played well for these 45, 50 minutes that we had on the court. It's unfortunate for my opponent, obviously. He had food poisoning he told me after the match. But I felt great on the court, and that's something that's really important for the start of the tournament.” Nole will next take on world no.74 Carlos Berlocq. Djokovic and Berlocq have never met before.

    Novak came back from a set down to defeat no.6 seed Frenchman Gael Monfils 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 in 2 hours and 33 minutes on centre court on Friday evening in a rematch of their quarter-final from Montreal last week. Djokovic won that one 6-2, 6-1, but Monfils was a much tougher competitor today and Nole needed to put more effort to book his place in the last four at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event. Match statistics: aces (2-12), double faults (4-7), winners (29-39), unforced errors (35-44).

    Top-seed Djokovic dismissed world no.29 Czech Radek Stepanek to reach quarterfinals of the Cincinnati Masters.He needed 1 hour and 22 minutes to claim a 6-3, 6-3 victory against the former top 10 player. "There are periods of the match where I serve okay and then periods where I serve very bad, but that's okay," said Novak. "It all happens. I played so many matches, and they caught up to me a little bit. It's expected that some part of my game is not working 100 per cent. But I believe that tomorrow the serve will be better. It's important to have the right mindset and positive attitude. I don't think that my rhythm is bad, it's just a little bit my toss and I'm out of balance on my serve and I'm forcing it a little bit too much. Maybe I should go a little bit for percentage rather than speed." Match statistics: aces (3-3), double faults (1-1), winners (18-9), unforced errors (19-23). The 24-year-old Serbian star improved to a 55-1 season record.Novak next plays no.6 seed Gael Monfils.
