It was one of the most ruthless, one-sided matches of this year’s Australian Open and has set-up a classic encounter with No2 seed Rafa Nadal on Sunday.
It promises to be an epic final – seven years after they battled it out for almost six hours.
Djokovic revealed he spoke with his four-year-old son Stefan shortly before going out on the Rod Laver Arena court.
And the 31-year-old, who also has a 16-month-old daughter Tara, said the conversation helped to relax him as he reached a 24th Grand Slam final.

Djokovic, who hit only five unforced errors, said: “My son wasn’t watching me. He is going to pre-school.
“But I talked with him about 45 minutes before the match. He was telling me about Spider-Man. He was also acting like a fish in an aquarium.
“He was doing different things. Basically, he always tells me: ‘Good luck, and make sure you win.’
“It’s truly a blessing to be a father. There’s no better thing that happened in my life.
