Australian Open 2019: Novak Djokovic Sets Up Rafael Nadal Final

Novak Djokovic has set up an exciting Australian Open final against Rafael Nadal by thrashing Lucas Pouille in a one-sided semi-final.

The Serbia international needed just one hour and 23 minutes to win 6-0 6-2 6-2.

Djokovic broke serve seven times as he outclassed 24-year-old Frenchman Pouille, seeded 28th and in his first Grand Slam semi-final.

Djokovic and Spaniard Nadal - who have 31 Grand Slams titles between them - meet on Sunday.

Djokovic, a 14-time major winner, is aiming for a seventh Australian Opencrown, which would move him clear of Roy Emerson and Roger Federer in terms of all-time victories in Melbourne.

Nadal, who would trail Federer by two if he wins his 18th major, could become the first man to claim a second career Grand Slam in the Open era.

"It's definitely one of the best matches I've ever had on this court," said Djokovic.

"Everything worked the way I imagined it. It's tough one for Lucas but he had a good tournament.

"It was highly unlikely twelve months ago that I would here a year later but I always have plenty of belief in myself. That's the key."

About the final against Rafael Nadal, he added: "I would definitely want to buy a ticket for that match.

"We have slightly different rules this year (the shot clock and super tie-break) so I don't think we will go that far."
