  • Djokovic defeats Almagro for semifinal spot

    3/16/12 3:51 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Novak Djokovic downed No. 12 seed Nicolas Almagro to earn a spot in the Indian Wells semifinals.

    Novak Djokovic took one step closer to defending his Indian Wells title. The Serb secured the match in straight sets, though Almagro put up a fight.

    The world No. 1 secured the first break of the match in the opening set, but Almagro pounced on a weak service game from Djokovic to earn the break back again. Djokovic remained calm and employed his world-class return game to secure a second break.

    Almagro fought hard to fend off break points in the second set. The Spaniard, whose forehand started to break down more and more as the match progressed, staved off four break points before Djokovic finally secured the lone break of the set.

    Djokovic awaits the winner of Gilles Simon and John Isner in the semis.

Almagro did his best but couldn't get past Nole. Now Nole has to try and fend off Isner in the SF.

Isner's forehand impressed me more than his serve, these last few days. I watched him in Davis Cup against Nole in Belgrade, on clay. He almost won. It took Nole 5 sets to prevail. Having in mind that he's not playing his best, I wouldn't be surprised if this is a very close match, maybe even with John taking it.
