Top seed Djokovic - the highest ranked male player to compete at Eastbourne since 1999 - was the first through to the semis after an hour and 35 minutes on court. I had a lot of time spent on the court, some good match play.

"I could not be happier to reach the final", said the 30-year-old Serb.

Seventh seed Gasquet saved two match points at 6-2 5-4 with a brilliant stretching drop-shot, before Monfils needed lengthy treatment in the next game when he injured his knee after slipping on the baseline. "I think I played a tough match".

The world No. 4 begins against Martin Klizan and will hope to put the woes of the past 12 months behind him and look to add to his three Wimbledon crowns.

"I won't rule out coming to Eastbourne next year or in the following years, but it depends on the schedule and the tournaments and my results". "Once he was number seven in the world and he beat (Roger) Federer at Wimbledon".

The event took place on Sunday at the Olympic Arena in Athens, Greece with 15,000 fans in attendance. He wants to beat the United States wearing Greek team colors. "I'll be waiting for them somewhere".


Djokovic will next play Daniil Medvedev after the Russian player beat fourth-seeded Steve Johnson 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 on a day when the tournament played catch-up after rain delays early in the week. Didn't get the trophy but I didn't do well in Wimbledon, so hopefully, I believe it can change with this trophy this year.

"We made the decision based on the fact I'm still quite sore through my thoracic spine". Definitely I will try to come back every year.

Pliskova earned her ninth career title by breaking Wozniacki once in each set.

"I'm just glad the way I kind of held my composure, my nerves", said Djokovic, the world No 4.

"I didn't sleep too well but I heard that's normal".
