Novak Djokovic reflects on reaching his 13th consecutive Grand Slam semifinal. He is in second place on the all-time list, but is still well behind Roger Federer, who reached 23 straight major final fours.

“There is a special task to reach Roger's 30 something,” he said with a laugh. “It's a huge achievement for me. I'm very proud of my success on Grand Slams because that's exactly where I want to do my best and where I want to play my top tennis and reach the latter stages of the event because these are the most important, most valuable tennis tournaments in the world."
