New Delhi: The world no 1 in Tennis, Novak Djokovic, was on top of his game against the Czech star Tomas Berdych during the fourth round encounter at the Australian Open on Tuesday. The Serbian bounced back from a marathon four-setter against Berdych to storm into the semi-finals of the tournament.
Djokovic defeated his Czech opponent - 6-1, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 in a span of 2hr 31 minutes on Tuesday. After Djokovic clinched the first set, Berdych put up a good show and looked to produce the biggest upset of the tournament this year.
Berdych broke the Serb in the opening game and went on to level the match by taking the second set, but it was all Djokovic in the closing two sets.
But, Djokovic held his nerve and pulled a thrilling win against Berdych. The win undoubtedly broke the heart of Berdych’s girlfriend Ester Satarova, who was anxiously rooting for her partner from the stands at Rod Laver Arena.
Djokovic now faces a semifinal on Thursday against Spanish fourth seed David Ferrer, who beat countryman Nicolas Almagro in five sets earlier Tuesday.
