Djokovic beats Federer to reach Australian Open final

Novak Djokovic once again beat great rival Roger Federer at a Grand Slam with a 7-6(1) 6-4 6-3 win to reach the Australian Open final and remain on course for a record-extending eighth title at Melbourne Park. It was the 50th act of one of the greatest rivalries of the sport and the odds were heavily stacked against Federer as the Swiss had not beaten the Serb at a major since 2012 on the grass courts of Wimbledon.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner got out of the blocks briskly on a hot evening to wrest early initiative as Djokovic struggled with his service games. Federer was up 4-1 and 40-0 on Djokovic’s serve but the Serb managed to save all three breakpoints to win his first service game as his opponent made an array of unforced errors.
