Novak Djokovic felt he “had an answer for everything” Kei Nishikori had to offer after he equalled a Roger Federer Olympic record.

The world number one defeated home favourite Nishikori 6-2, 6-0 in the quarter-finals of the men’s singles event at the Tokyo Games.

Djokovic tied the men’s singles record of 13 Olympic match wins held by his great rival Roger Federer. The Serbian will break the record if he defeats Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals on Friday.

“Kei, I know his game very well. Him playing in Japan, this court where he had lots of success, I knew that he’s going to play very quick,” the 34-year-old said in a post-match interview.

“And he’s not gonna give me a lot of time, so I had to be very alert. And I feel I had an answer for everything he had.”

Djokovic is aiming to win a first Olympic gold medal to keep his hopes of becoming the first man to win a Golden Calendar Slam alive.
