Novak Djokovic closed in on a potential blockbuster French Open semifinal against Carlos Alcaraz after beating 11th seed Karen Khachanov 4-6, 7-6 (7/0), 6-2, 6-4 on Tuesday to reach the last four.

Djokovic, chasing a third French Open crown and record 23rd men’s Grand Slam singles title, advanced to a 45th major semifinal and his 12th at Roland Garros.

He will take on world No 1 Alcaraz or Stefanos Tsitsipas, the player he beat from two sets down in 2021 final, for a place in Sunday’s championship match.

“I think he was a better player for most of the first two sets,” said Djokovic.

“I was struggling to find my rhythm. I came into the match quite slow but played a perfect tie-break and from that moment onwards played a couple of levels higher.

“It’s a big fight, something you expect in the quarter-finals. You’re not going to have your victories handed to you, you have to earn them.”

Djokovic improved his record at Roland Garros to 90-16 after denying Khachanov his spot in a third successive Grand Slam semi-final. He will return to number one if he wins the title in Paris.
