Novak Djokovic has reached the semi-finals in Tokyo as he continues on the trail to complete a Calendar Golden Slam.

The world number one defeated home favourite Kei Nishikori 6-2 6-0 in just one hour and 10 minutes to book his place in the last four.

Djokovic is yet to win an Olympic medal in his illustrious career, losing to Juan Martin Del Petro at both London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Following his quarter-final victory, the Serb is now guaranteed to play a medal match.

Djokovic continued his fine form and was at his brilliant best from ball one, racing into a 3-0 lead with an array of delightful ground-strokes.

Nishikori fought hard to get back into the opening set, but Djokovic’s early lead was pivotal as he closed out the set 6-2 in 41 minutes.

Despite the Japanese star playing some beautiful tennis in the second set, Djokovic was just too good, as many players have found in 2021.

The world number one quickly grabbed authority of the second set and sprinted to the winning line, taking the match 6-2 6-0.

Djokovic will play either Alexander Zverev or Jeremy Chardy for a place in the gold medal match.
