  • Djokovic downs Haase, Berdych next

    4/20/12 6:20 PM | Kelli DeMario
    World No. 1 Novak Djokovic continued his bid for the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters title, having ousted Robin Haase in straight sets early Friday. The top seed is through to face world No. 7 Tomas Berdych for a place in the final.

    Novak Djokovic reached his fifth semifinal of the season following his 6-4, 6-2 ousting of Robin Haase. The 24-year-old secured seven of 12 break points through an hour and 18 minutes of play.

    Djokovic lost his opening-service game but came back to lead 4-1. Haase leveled to 4-4 before dropping serve in the 10th game. Djokovic continued his effort to build a 4-0 in the second set. After losing serve at 5-1, the world No. 1 recovered to break in the eighth game.

    "Today was a bit better, but still a lot of emotional ups and downs throughout the match," Djokovic explained. "But look, I'm playing tennis. I'm very satisfied that I was able to compose myself and get on the court and try to win matches. I got to the semifinals, which is big result for me under the circumstances.

    "I was very close to (my grandfather), so it was a big loss for me and all the family. But he's with me, I know that, in spirit. I'm remembering only the nicest memories, and that's what gave me strength to play yesterday and today."

    Djokovic will take on 6th seed Tomas Berdych in the semifinals. The Czech rallied to defeat 3rd seed Andy Murray in the quarterfinals, 6-7(4), 6-2, 6-3.
