“I want to maintain this level of performance by winning tomorrow.” says Djokovic.

Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic secured a place in the semi-finals of the BNP Paribas Open following a straight-sets victory over Richard Gasquet. The Serbian was once again on top form at Indian Wells, surging to a 6-2 6-4 victory to set up a last-four showdown with either Roger Federer or Swiss counterpart Stanislas Warwinka. The one hour 35 minute victory also extends Djokovic’s perfect record this season to 16-0. But he didn’t have it all his own way, twice battling back from early service breaks by Gasquet in each set to seal the win on the showpiece stadium court. Djokovic came from 0-3 down in the second set and capitalised on a rising tally of unforced errors by his opponent to book his place in the last four of the elite ATP Masters 1000 event. “It’s been the best period of my tennis career definitely the last three months, winning a grand slam, the Davis Cup and playing really well here on the court at Indian Wells,” a delighted Djokovic said courtside.
