Nole is through to The Championships semi-final!

Top seed Novak Djokovic eliminated 21st seed David Goffin on Wednesday to reach his ninth Wimbledon semi-final (5-3).

Djokovic recorded a 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 win to advance after one hour and 57 minutes on Centre Court.

Goffin broke first, but the Serbian star responded strong to overcome an early deficit. He converted seven of his 10 break point chances, and now leads his ATP H2H series with the Belgian 6-1. It was their first meeting on grass.

“I’ve been playing my best tennis in this tournament in the past two rounds, the fourth round and today, especially today in the second set and third set against Goffin, who was in-form. I felt like I managed to dismantle his game and always find the right shots. Very pleased with the performance,” Djokovic said. “This match could have gone a different way. I was a break down. He was the better player for most of the first set. But I managed to turn things around.”

Match statistics: aces (3-4), double faults (3-5), winners (24-28), unforced errors (17-23), total points won (93-66).

Novak will meet no.23 seed Roberto Bautista Agut on Friday for a place in the championship match. The Spaniard defeated Argentine Guido Pella in four sets.

Roger Federer (SUI, 2) and Rafael Nadal (ESP, 3) face-off in the second semi-final.

Nole dropped only one set en route to the last four. The defending champion is pursuing his fifth title at SW19.
