Djokovic, to the semifinals with a sovereign beating to Coria

After a strange debut against the unknown German Mats Moaring, in which he had to close the victory in the second set tiebreaker and broke a racket, Novak Djokovic demonstrated this Thursday in his tournament, the second ATP 250 from Belgrade, that he wants to take revenge for the elimination suffered in the first edition that took place a few weeks ago. The Serbian got into the semifinals with a sovereign beating to Argentine Federico Coria, whom he beat 6-1 and 6-0 in just 55 minutes.

Djokovic will face his compatriot Dusan Lajovic or the Slovak Andrej Martín on Friday with the idea of ​​getting into the final of the event directed by his brother Djordje, and that what happened to him in April at home, when the Russian Aslan Karatsev he dismounted in the penultimate round, a defeat that caused him enormous anger.

Federico, 29 years old and 96th in the world, little brother of the most successful Guillermo Coria, was not given the option of trying to surprise. The first set was opened by number one with a 4-0 and after the 4-1 of his rival, he endorsed a partial of 8-0 to finalize the commitment almost without disheveled. Djokovic lost eight points on his serve for a total of 22 in the entire match. It is curious that with that overwhelming score against an Argentine he surpasses another, Guillermo Vilas, with 952 victories, as fifth place in the historical list of the Open Era (since 1968).
