Djokovic reaches the Roland Garros semi-final

Novak Djokovic will take on Dominic Thiem at Roland Garros for the third time in four years, for his semi-final match.

In Djokovic's quarter-final, he found himself in a spot of bother in the first set against fifth seed Alexander Zverev but untroubled thereafter, easing to a 7-5 6-2 6-2 victory.

Zverev served for the first set at 5-4 but was broken before double-faulting on set point. He then served three successive double faults to finish the second set and Djokovic did not look back as he progressed to his first semi-final here since winning the title in 2016.
