Novak Djokovic qualified for the semi-finals of the ATP 250 tournament in Belgrade on Thursday, but the world No.1 once again dropped a set to his opponent.

Djokovic eliminated compatriot Miomir Kecmanovic (N.38), a recent quarter-finalist in Indian Wells and Miami, in three sets, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3.

The day before, after conceding the first set, Djokovic, 34, had to fight to defeat another compatriot, Lazlo Djere (N. 50). He will face for a place in the final the winner of the match between the Russian Karen Khachanov (N.26) and the Brazilian qualifier Thiago Monteiro.

The Serbian, who was unable to defend his chances at the Australian Open or the Masters 1000 tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami due to his refusal to be vaccinated against Covid-19, has played only six matches since the beginning of the season and now has four wins for two losses, including a first-round elimination in Monte Carlo.
