   World no.2 Novak Djokovic extended his season-opening winning streak to 30 matches at the Mutua Madrid Open, surpassing the best start in men’s tennis in 25 years!

   Djokovic, the Australian Open champion, beat no.6 seed Spaniard David Ferrer, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 in 2 hours and 27 minutes on Friday to advance to the semi-finals of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament.

   Nole was broken in the second game of the opening set, but he broke back immediately and held to level the result. The 23-year-old Belgrade native broke Ferrer’s serve once again in the ninth game and closed the set 6-4 in 44 minutes.
   Djokovic made a break in the opening game of the second set and consolidated it for 2-0 lead. He lost his momentum in the sixth game and let his opponent come back into the match. Novak was serving to stay in the set, when Ferrer broke him for the second time to take the set 6-4 and level the match up at one set all.
   The second-seeded Serb stayed calm and focused, mentally strong. He made a crucial break in the fifth game of the decisive final set, kept the advantage and broke the Spaniard again in the ninth game to seal the set and match 6-3.
This is Novak's first win over Ferrer on clay.
