Novak Djokovic advanced to his record-tying 13th Wimbledon semifinal without hitting a ball on Wednesday after Alex de Minaur pulled out with an injury.

The ninth-seeded De Minaur, 25, announced shortly after noon at the All England Club that he was "devastated to pull out due to a hip injury."

That allowed Djokovic to equal Roger Federer's men's record of 13 semifinal appearances at Wimbledon as he closes on the Swiss great's mark of eight singles titles.
