Tennis: Novak Djokovic sets up Andy Murray Olympic semi-final
Thursday 02 August 2012
Novak Djokovic brushed aside Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to set up a mouthwatering semi-final clash against home favourite Andy Murray.
Djokovic, who has never lost to Murray in a grand slam, looked to have the trickiest of the four quarter-finals at Wimbledon, but he made light work of Tsonga this afternoon, defeating the Frenchman 6-1 7-5 on Centre Court.
The world number two will meet Murray for the first time on grass tomorrow after the British number one hammered Spain's Nicolas Almagro 6-4 6-1.
Should Murray beat the Serb, he will be guaranteed his first Olympic medal.
