Playing on a court with his name on it, Novak Djokovic showed no mercy to country Miomir Kecmanovic as he dominated in a 6-1, 6-3 win to reach the Belgrade semifinals.
The World No. 1 needed just 75 minutes to improve to 12-1 on the year.
“I think personally I’m feeling very well on court, moving well, hitting the ball well and, of course, enjoying the home court advantage,” Djokovic said. “So I’m really excited to go out in the semi-finals on the court again tomorrow.”
In a rematch of their Australian semifinal, Djokovic will meet Aslan Karatsev tomorrow. The 2021 breakout star ousted Italian qualifier Gianluca Mager 6-3, 6-3.
No. 2 seed Matteo Berrettini also made the semifinals after beating Filip Krajinovic 6-4, 6-4. He’ll now meet lucky loser Taro Daniel who upset Federico Delbonis in three sets.
Djokovic is seeking his third Belgrade title.
