Novak Djokovic looks to move through gears in semis

DEFENDING champion Novak Djokovic says he will have to take his game to another level to beat Richard Gasquet in tonight's semi-finals at Wimbledon.

After beating US Open champion Marin Cilic 6-4 6-4 6-4 to reach his 27th grand slam semi-final - the most behind only Roger Federer (38), Jimmy Connors (31) and Ivan Lendl (28) - Djokovic said he hoped he could play even better.

"I'm hoping I have that extra gear," the world No.1 said. "I'm hoping it can come out now in the semi-finals."

In the other semi-final, 2013 winner Andy Murray (pictured) will have the chance to take his career record against Roger Federer to 12-12 after the Scot beat Canada's Vasek Pospisil 6-4 7-5 6-4. Federer, a seven-time champion at the All England Club, earned his spot in the last four by beating France's Gilles Simon 6-3 7-5 6-2.

The Swiss ace has a perfect 9-0 record in semi-finals at Wimbledon.
