The top 3 seeds guaranteed their spots on the semi final matches of the Dubai Duty Free Men’s Open happening at the Dubai Tennis Stadium on Friday. Top seeded player and defending champ Novak Djokovic will take on 3rd seed Andy Murray, whereas four time champ Roger Federer will go one on one with Juan Martin Del Potro.

Novak secured a tough 6 – 1, 7 – 6 (6) victory over his very close friend and compatriot Janko Tipsarevic and Andy Murray got an easy win against 5th seed Tomas Berdych 6 – 3, 7 – 5.

In the lower end of the draw, Roger Federer took his tennis career record to 12 – 0 against Mikhail Youzhny with a 6 – 3, 6 – 4 licking of the single unseeded player in the quarter-final matchws, and after that Del Potro – who had defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in last Friday’s semi-final match in Marseille, rose up with a repetition with a 7 – 6 (1), 6 – 2 result against the French player.

Roger Federer was not off to his general boom at the onset, but he fused as the set went on getting his 1st break in the 4th for a 3 – 1 lead. Federer told that it is not easy. He played nice on the services games. He is really pleased with another semi final match in Dubai. Roger added that the 2nd set with an early break kept for 2 – 0 and moved all the way to grab set and match 6 – 4 to fix a repeat of the Rotterdam Open final took place last month. Federer told that both of them have been playing well of late and he has met both of them quite a few times in recent past. Either of them will do for him in the semi-final match.
