Novak Djokovic gave Serbia more to celebrate at the French Open when he outplayed Russia's [Images] Igor Andreev 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 on Wednesday to reach the semi-finals of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.
The youngest player left in the draw at 20, Djokovic taught Andreev a tennis lesson to join women compatriots Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic in the last four of the showcase claycourt event.
Andreev, who has dropped to world number 125 after being sidelined for six months last year following knee surgery, was never in contention.
