Novak Djokovic unleashed his big game on fellow Serb Miomir Kecmanovic to produce a 6-1, 6-3 win into the semi-finals of the Belgrade Open.

With the Djokovic family running the show in the capital, it was down to big brother Nole to produce the goods to keep local punters enthralled.

The No. 1 son did his bit, taking 76 minutes to eliminate his compatriot with five breaks of serve.

“I’m feeling very well on court, moving well, hitting the ball well and, of course, enjoying the home court advantage,” Djokovic said. “So I’m really excited to go out in the semi-finals on the court again tomorrow.”

The ATP No. 1 has limited his schedule this season and is competing in only his second event of 2021.

“There is a lot more for him to improve on with his footwork and his game — for all of us really,” Djokovic said of his losing compatriot.

“Kecmanovic definitely has the potential to go far. He has already won one tournament and I know that his goals, his ambitions, are high.”

Djokovic now plays surprise Australian Open semi-finalist Aslan Karatsev after the Russian defeated Gianluca Mager of Italy 6-3, 6-4.
