There was better news for Djokovic’s fellow Serb Dusan Lajovic, however, as he overcame Lorenzo Sonego to reach his first Masters-level semi-final.
“Right now it’s a relief and I showed to myself that I could do it,” Lajovic said after his 6-4, 7-5 win.
“The tournament is still not over but I’m extremely happy and satisfied with the way I’ve played this week.”
