Djokovic Cruises To Monte Carlo Semis

Novak Djokovic powered his way into the semi final of the Monte Carlo Masters on Friday with a 6-0, 6-3 win over US Open champion Marin Cilic.
The Serb, who has dropped only 12 games this week at the Country Club, extended his unbeaten record over his Croatian rival to 12 matches in another display of solid tennis.
Djokovic won the first eight games before Cilic managed to hold his serve, raising a thumb in the air in relief.
The eighth-seeded Cilic fought hard and saved two match points in the final game but could not hold his serve as Djokovic closed out the match.
Djokovic, who ended Rafael Nadal’s reign in Monte Carlo when he won the clay-court Masters tournament in 2013, could face the Spaniard in the semi final if he beats David Ferrer later Friday.
Djokovic is off to his best start since 2011 and is bidding to win a third Masters title in a row this year following his victories in Indian Wells and Miami.
Earlier, Tomas Berdych advanced to the semi final for the third time after Milos Raonic retired with a foot injury.
