Novak Djokovic stormed into Sunday’s Australian Open final against Rafael Nadal
On the hottest day in Melbourne for eight years, a red-hot Novak Djokovic stormed into Sunday’s Australian Open final against Rafael Nadal with a tennis masterclass against Lucas Pouille.
Top-seeded Djokovic, contesting his 34th career Grand Slam semi-final, pursuing a record seventh championship at Melbourne Park and 15th major trophy overall made just five unforced errors as he destroyed 28th-seeded Pouille 6-0 6-2 6-2 to reach the showpiece event once again.
Djokovic said: “It’s definitely one of the best matches I ever had on this court. Everything worked the way I’d imagined it and even more so. Tough one for Lucas but he had a great tournament and I wish him all the best for the rest of the season.”
