Novak Djokovic into Wimbledon semi-finalsLondon: World number one Novak Djokovic reached his 13th consecutive Grand Slam semi-final on Wednesday with a 7-6 (7/5), 6-4, 6-3 win over Czech seventh seed Tomas Berdych.

Djokovic, the 2011 champion, will face Juan Martin del Potro, the Argentine eighth seed, for a place in Sunday`s final.

Djokovic is yet to drop a set in his five matches at this year`s tournament and the 2011 champion is now just two wins away from lifting the All England Club trophy for the second time.

Berdych had beaten Djokovic in the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2010, but that was one of just two wins for the Czech seventh seed in their 15 meetings.


The losing streak always looked likely to continue once Djokovic took a tight first set in the tie-break, to the delight of Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic, who was cheering on his fellow Serb from courtside.


Djokovic, a six-time Grand Slam champion, recovered from 3-0 down in the second set and surged to victory in his 17th consecutive Grand Slam quarter-final appearance.
