Djokovic, Isner Set Indian Wells Semifinal Meeting

“I played John here a few years ago and I remember that match — 7-6 in the third, and also lost to him very close one in Cincinnati last year,” Djokovic said. “He’s definitely not somebody you like to play in the big heat with such serve. It’s very challenging because he doesn’t miss his serve too much, so you have to kind of be able to hold your composure from the first to the last point and be ready to play three tiebreaks.”

Weekend Wrap: Gulbis Wins Marseille, Says Be Afraid

“I think [the top players] feel threatened by my game, because they know if I serve well and I’m aggressive, then it’s tough to play against me,” the Latvian said. “I don’t feel I’m in the same league as the [Top 4] yet, I need to prove it. Game-wise, I think that I can be.”
