World number one Novak Djokovic overcame early physical struggles to beat Pablo Carreno Busta and reach the French Open semi-finals. The Serb arrived on court with tape on his neck, repeatedly massaged his left biceps and grimaced on his way to losing the first set, but went on to win 4-6 6-2 6-3 6-4. It was a rematch of September’s US Open encounter where Djokovic was defaulted for hitting a line judge with a ball. Djokovic faces Stefanos Tsitsipas next.
