Novak Djokovic overcame his protege at Wimbledon on Wednesday, holding on to reach the semifinals for the third time in his career with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 victory over 18-year-old Australian qualifier Bernard Tomic.

Djokovic has been practicing with Tomic on-and-off since the two became friends last year in Australia. This was the first meeting between the two in a competitive match.

In the semi finals, Djokovic will face either six-time champion Roger Federer or 2008 Australian Open finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
