Novak Djokovic's way to a tenth progressive US Open semi-finals has been a weird one, however the world number one isn't grumbling. "I'm in the elimination rounds, so's what makes a difference for me the most," Djokovic said after quarter-last enemy Jo-Wilfried Tsonga resigned with a left knee damage while trailing 6-3, 6-2. Djokovic had effectively gotten a walkover into the third round when Czech Jiri Vesely pulled back from the competition with a harm, and he spent only 32 minutes on court before Mikhail Youzhny gave it up in their last-32 conflict.
"I can just wish the majority of my rivals a fast recuperation," Djokovic said. "That is everything I can do on my end. "I clearly attempt to concentrate on things that I have to do, adhere to the course of action." He said he saw halfway during that time set that something was going ahead with Tsonga. "I'm certain it's not a simple circumstance for him to handle, playing quarter-finals and retiring night session. However, once more, it's game," Djokovic said.
Tsonga looked for treatment after he was softened for a brief moment time up the second set, recoiling as the coach controlled his knee before wrapping tape underneath the joint. After Djokovic held to take the set, Tsonga twofold blamed to open the third and threw in the towel. "I have a torment in my left knee. It's something I had as of now before, so I know precisely what's going on," he said.
"I knew it was over for me straightaway, since when I have my knee obviously it's as of now intense to play against one of the best tennis players. "In any case, when I don't have my knee, I have no way to return from two sets to love. So for me, it's imperative to spare what I can spare. What's more, that is it."
Djokovic, who will face France's Gael Monfils for a spot in the title match, comprehends what it resembles to be beat up late in a long season. His development to the last Grand Slam of the year was hampered by a wrist harm, and he got treatment on his arm amid both his first and fourth-round matches. He said he was more thankful for the additional rest than he was worried about any absence of match play.
"In this phase of the season, thinking of some as physical issues I have had in the most recent month, month and an a large portion of, this was the situation that I required," he said. "I got a great deal of days off and recouped my body. At this moment I'm feeling near the pinnacle. That is the position where I need to be."
