Djokovic into semis While Serena bows out

Tennis News: Australian Open 2019

Djokovic into semis While Serena bows out
Novak Djokovic made it into the semi-finals of the Australian Open after Kei Nishikori was forced to withdraw injured at 6-1 4-1 down.

Nishikori, seeded eighth in Melbourne, was evidently struggling from the start of the match and quickly slipped to 6-1 in the first set.
At 4-1 down in the second the Japanese star offered a handshake to Djokovic, who enjoyed a comfortable passage to the last four where he will face France’s Lucas Pouille.

“I wish Kei a speedy recovery and I’m sorry for everyone for not having a full match tonight,” Djokovic said on Eurosport.

“This was my first Grand Slam trophy back when I was 20 years old. That opened a lot of doors for me. I have great memories from this arena and the fans that have supported me over the years.”

MEN’S SEMI-FINAL LINE-UP
  • 14-Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece) v 2-Rafa Nadal (Spain)
  • 1-Novak Djokovic (Serbia) v 28-Lucas Pouille (France)

In the women’s quarter final match Serena Williams squandered four match points as Karolina Pliskova remarkably battled back from 5-1 down in the final set to reach the Australian Open semi-finals.

An extraordinary decider saw Pliskova, chasing a maiden Grand Slam, win six games in a row to seal a 6-4 4-6 7-5 victory and end Williams’ hopes of a record-equaling 24th major.
The standout moment – and arguably the turning point – of the final set saw Williams called for a foot fault on her first match point, before going on to injure her ankle in the rally that followed as Pliskova eventually broke back to make it 5-2.

Osaka beat Elina Svitolina earlier on Wednesday to reach the semis, and will face Pliskova for a place in the final on Thursday as she targets back-to-back Grand Slams.
