Djokovic closes in on elusive Masters 1000 title by reaching Cincinnati final

Grigor Dimitrov 'Novak Djokovic can do anything'

Djokovic, a five-time finalist in Cincinnati, is aiming to lift the trophy at the sole Masters 1,000 series event he has never won.

World number two Roger Federer won his second game of the day on Friday as he beat Stan Wawrinka to reach the semi-finals of the Cincinnati Masters.

NOVAK Djokovic is closing in on the one title that has eluded him, reaching the final of the Western & Southern Open on Saturday with a three- set victory over Marin Cilic.

"Quite a roller coaster, to be honest", he said. "But it was only after he was treated that I knew something might be wrong". I felt I was just slightly in a disadvantage just starting the match like that and maybe took me a little bit more adjustment to do at the beginning of the match.

"I'm gonna recover for tomorrow". I'm here to enjoy a sport that I love, I've got plenty of motivation.

"I'm happy today was fairly easy".

Petra Kvitova, who toppled Serena Williams in the second round, reached the last eight with a 6-4, 6-2 win over France's Kristina Mladenovic.

A wide forehand off the next point saw the Belgian's situation worsen, and Federer took advantage, sending down his eighth ace of the set to take control, before another netted forehand rally ball saw Goffin succumb.

"I think also I'm less stressed", she said. "I've now got a hard final against a tough opponent". Djokovic leads the overall series 23-22. "Hopefully I can get it done this time", he said. I stayed in there for two-and-a-half hours, and not much was separating us. Djokovic broke that streak to go up 4-3 in the opening set, prompting Federer to mutter angrily.

Novak Djokovic will see Marin Cilic in the semi-finals.

"It's been a hard week with rain delays and all that was happening". I've been down in my last three matches but I've come back.

Halep will hope to add to the Rogers Cup title she earned last week when she faces The Netherlands' Kiki Bertens in the final.

"If I fight like I've done here, I will have a big chance", Halep said. Djokovic is trying to win the tournament for the first time. The match was interrupted for 21 minutes with players being sent off court and crowds told to seek shelter as a storm cell passed near the site. "So, I think that's what's nice about this time around with Novak in the match". "It was a tough match, but I'm so glad to be in the final".

Keys next faces Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus, who upset French sixth seed Caroline Garcia 6-4, 3-6, 7-5. He's 3-1 against Federer in Grand Slam finals and 12-6 overall in championship matches, including wins at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 2015. The second set was more straightforward, as Cilic never faced a break point on his way to claiming victory in 1 hour, 45 minutes.
