TORONTO: Top-seed Novak Djokovic came through two battles on a rain-soaked day to move into the semi-finals of the Toronto Masters. Djokovic needed almost two and a half hours to hold off tenacious Tommy Haas 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 as the 34-year-old German continued to roll back the years after playing three ATP finals since mid-June and winning a grass title over Roger Federer in Halle. Djokovic started his longest day by defeating American Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-4 in a match which lasted just 65 minutes but was interrupted for two and a half hours by a rainstorm. “It’s tough for players and fans,” said the Serb. “We have had no luck with the weather, we were all waiting around to play.”
