Johannesburg – Swiss ace Roger Federer will meet Serb Novak Djokovic in a semi-final showdown in the Paris Masters after he beat Argentine Juan Martin del Potro 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in Friday’s quarter-finals.

Djokovic had earlier beat Federer’s Swiss compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka 6-1, 6-4.

According to Sport24, Federer was in commanding form from the start, breaking serve to lead 3-1 and had little difficulty pocketing the first set from there in just 30 minutes, leaving a weary Del Potro stranded on the baseline with a succession of deft drop shots

Although Del Potro fought off a series of break points and summoned up a huge effort in the 10th game to finally take Federer’s serve, the Swiss however, powered on to take another step towards what would be a 22nd career Masters title, and only his second in Paris after that of 2011, the report added.
