After seeing off big servers Kyle Edmund and Karen Khachanov, he faced Nishikori, who had recovered from his own serious injury to hit peak form in reaching his first Wimbledon quarter-final.
However, Nishikori was prevented from launching a comeback as Djokovic, a three-time Wimbledon champion, regained his composure and managed to grind out wins in the third set (6-2) and in the fourth set (6-2) to set up a semifinal match against Juan Martín del Potro or Rafa Nadal.
"I thought it was unnecessary to get the warning", Djokovic said as he came off court. I get the warning, he doesn't - it's not fair.
It will be Djokovic's first Grand Slam semi-final since the 2016 US Open as he continues his bid to return to the top of the game.

"You think I ruined the court for just throwing my racket (down)?"
After serving his way to a 2-1 lead in the third set, Djokovic ramped up his efforts and was met head-on with Nishikori's increase in tempo, but the No. 24 seed missed three break points at 2-2 and was soon trailing.
The three-time Wimbledon champion was broken in the opening game of the fourth set, but won the next four games and broke again to clinch victory. "I knew how I threw the racquet", he said.
After two years of physical and mental struggles, Djokovic appears fit and confident and ready to try to add to his tally of 12 grand slam titles.
The 12-time Grand Slam champion then raised his level in the fourth set and finished with a victor into the corner to book his place in Friday's semi-finals where he was joined by a familiar foe as Nadal won through late in the day.
