Top seed Novak Djokovic set up a tantalising Australian Open final against Rafael Nadal by thrashing Lucas Pouille in a one-sided semi-final that lasted just one hour and 23 minutes with 6-0 6-2 6-2 scoreline.
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.
The world number one set up their first meeting in Melbourne since their epic six-hour final in 2012 – which the Serb eventually won – with a near flawless performance against Pouille.
He made just five unforced errors and hit 29 winners on Rod Laver Arena.
“It is definitely one of the best matches I’ve ever had on this court,” said the 14-time major winner.
“Everything worked how I imagined it before the match – it was a tough one for Lucas.”
