LONDON – Serbian third seed Novak Djokovic defeated Taiwan's Lu Yen-Hsun 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in the men's singles quarter-finals at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

"Nothing is easy these days, especially at this stage of the tournament," Djokovic said.

"But the way I have played I think I deserve to win. I was hitting all the shots and I was really playing very solid from all parts of the court so I'm very, very happy with the performance.

"I sincerely hope to continue with this level of my game. The way I have been playing match after match is very encouraging.

"I've nothing really to lose in the semi-finals," he added.

Djokovic faces either Swiss defending champion Roger Federer, who is gunning for his seventh Wimbledon crown, or Czech 12th seed Tomas Berdych, in Friday's semi-finals.
