Djokovic faces practice pal Pouille for place in final

Djokovic was never troubled on his own serve as he took the second set 6-2 with less than an hour played at Rod Laver Arena.

"As you can imagine, it was not easy", said the 28th seed.

"(It's) just so impressive how Novak's been able to switch the lights back on after two years of trying to figure out the problem", he said.

I'll take Djokovic in straight sets.

"I think that kind of pure emotion got me going".

"It feels unbelievable because for the first time in my life I have someone screaming, "Daddy, Daddy" and it's my little boy right there", Djokovic said at the time, pointing up into his supporters' box and waved.

Having withdrawn from the Brisbane International leadup tournament with a thigh strain, Nadal was thrilled with his tennis and fitness at Melbourne Park, where past year he retired hurt in the quarter-finals. "Everyone I know talks very highly of Amelie, as a person and coach". I think they going to make a great match again. I think that this final comes at the right time for both of us.

"He's not afraid to play his best at the biggest stage in sports". "Not so many players can beat him for sure".

"Maybe it's the fact they have children and then they have to leave the children", said Mauresmo, who brought her two children with her to Melbourne.

"Before the match, I was okay", Nishikori said.

Eurosport presenter Matt Smith posed the question whether we could see a fifth-set super tie-break come into place in the final. There was plenty of good will toward the Frenchman at centre court but even his most loyal fans would have tutted at the way he conceded the second set in 33 minutes.

"I would definitely want to buy the ticket for the match, for those who haven't yet", he quipped in his on-court interview. But he also has a game that fits my game pretty well. "I don't feel at the moment that my body has any significant wear and tear that would compromise my game". A mighty forehand crosscourt victor sealed the break for Novak although he failed to close the set on own serve, suffering a break after a stunning backhand return victor from Roger who extended the set for a game or two. We've known each other obviously for a long time.

However, when you consider the drama that surrounded her triumph at Flushing Meadows - and who could forget Osaka being moved to tears in the post-match presentation as boos rained down from the stands of Arthur Ashe Stadium - this really is a run to be admired.

"But when he's playing that far from the baseline, 10 centimetres from the baseline all the time, it's tough to do it". That's kind of hard.

And the great Spaniard was in no mood to hang about at the start of the third, breaking Tsitsipas not once but three times to inflict a humiliating 6-0 "bagel" on the youngster in a further 31 minutes. But doing three hours, four hours, I imagine could be hard because we didn't even play for two hours'.
