Start time: 19:00 UK
Novak Djokovic will face Kei Nishikori in the semifinal at Mutua Madrid Open. The match will be the third in the program at Central Cort and will start around 19:00 UK.
Novak Djokovic, world number 1, will face Kei Nishikori, world number 6.
Djokovic, like we said in the previous tip against Milos Raonic, makes fantastic season again.
He wins his first tournament of the year in Doha, later he wins Australia Open and then the two Masters: Indian Wells and Miami in the United States.
On clay, The Serbian makes a shocking start when he lost his first match in Monte Carlo against Jiri Vesely and now he will seek revenge by trying to triumph in Madrid.
Since Nadal plays at his best again on clay it will be very interesting to see a game between him and Djokovic, which will be very interesting so we can draw conclusions what we can expect at Roland Garros.
Kei Nishikori plays very stable since the start of the season. The Japanese meet Djokovic two times this year and lost both times. On clay, Kei plays very well and reached the final in Monte Carlo, where he loses from Rafael Nadal. In Madrid, he beat Fabio Fognini, Richard Gasquet, and Nick Kyrgios to reach the semifinal and arrange another clash against Nole.
Djokovic and Nishikori met 9 times and Nole won 7 of them. They had two games on clay and The Serbian record two victories. Since the start of the season, they also play two matches and again Djokovic won them. I expect another win for Djokovic and eventual final against Rafael Nadal.
