    Djokovic defeats Cilic, into Cincinnati semifinals Novak Djokovic takes care of Marin Cilic in straight sets on Friday in Cincinnati. Next up for Djokovic is a rematch of the Olympic bronze-medal match in Saturday's semifinals.

    Novak Djokovic booked a spot in the semifinals of the Western & Southern Open with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Marin Cilic on Friday afternoon. Djokovic saved all four of the break points he faced to advance in one hour and 21 minutes.

    It started to come apart for Cilic in the second game of the match. Cincinnati's No. 12 seed led 40-0 but could not hold serve and was broken. Djokovic fought off two break chances to extend his lead to 3-0 and his opponent never could get back on level terms.

    Cilic at least did well to make Djokovic serve out the set. Th 6'6'' Croat whiffed an overhead at 2-5, deuce, but he saved three set points in total that game to hold. Djokovic finished things off one game later with a love hold, converting his fourth set point on a Cilic forehand miss.

    With momentum in hand, Djokovic was quick to get another upper hand in set two. The second-ranked Serb broke for 2-1 as Cilic's groundstrokes really collapsed. One more break at 4-2 allowed Djokovic to serve out the match. He did just that in the eighth game, but not before staving off two break points with service winners.

    The No. 2 seed finished with seven aces and two double-faults while winning 84 percent of his first-serve points. He will go up against Juan Martin Del Potro on Saturday in a rematch of the bronze-medal showdown.
