Novak Djokovic has reached the US Open semi-finals after sustaining his record in the last eight with victory over Roger Federer’s conqueror John Millman.
The 31-year-old Serbian earned a 6-3 6-4 6-4 victory over the Australian world number 55.The victory also means he has now won all 11 of his quarter-final matches in New York.
He goes on to play Japan’s Kei Nishikori in the last four on Friday.
Djokovic missed last year’s tournament with an elbow injury but has now reached at least the semi-finals in every appearance at Flushing Meadows since 2007.
The victory was not as easy for the sixth seed as the scoreline suggested, Australian Millman providing stoic resistance before Djokovic came through to take his first match point after two hours 49 minutes, just before midnight local time.
