The world 40-ranked Anderson beat Djokovic in the second round of the same event three years ago. But the Serb enjoyed a sweet revenge as he trounced Anderson 6-4, 6-2 in one hour, 48 minutes, improving his unbeaten record to 22-0 this season.

"It was anything but easy. The result doesn't show what we had on the court definitely,"said Djokovic after the match. "I kind of expect him to be aggressive, but he was really going for the shots. He was really putting a lot of pressure on me."

Djokovic's opponent in the semifinals will be Mardy Fish, who beat 6th seed David Ferrer 7-5, 6-2 in a match played earlier and will leapfrog Andy Roddick as the highest ranked American player when the next ATP Tour rankings come out.
