Djokovic way too solid after the first set for an inconsistent Federer. Hopefully #NextGen pulls it off in the final - don't think Djokovic is at his unbeatable best here.

Well done Novak. :) Didn't even think he played that great but he did what he needed to. He's now beaten both Federer and Nadal 20 times on hard courts. :eek:
 
Some Djokovic fans are starting to get really obnoxious! Let's see how far he goes when he is 38 years old.

I really hope Thiem or Zverev take him out in the finals. That's the only thing that will stop these irritating fools!
Djoki will have passed fed way before then! Fed will regret not winning more between 2012 Wimbledon to Aussi open 2017. Only had himself to blame.

I was busy reading the match earlier on...cannot watch live hence my late reply. Back then Federer was still in it...

lol at Djokovic celebrating arrogantly at beating a near 40 year old injured man. And dude's still bitter why he's not as well liked.
Fed wags his finger all the time...wow. Come on, be fair here.

Anyway, not even that terrible a match from Fed, but expected win by Djokovic, who played well overall. No real areas where he has lacked, this is a low-key but impressive tournament run by him. After set 1 it was clear how the rest was going to play out, but still some entertaining winners by Fed.

Wow, Djokovic ignoring Murray like they haven’t played a million Aus Open slam finals.

Yet he has a very good chance of creeping closer to 20. I’m not a fan of his tennis but if he keeps this up he might surpass Federer as the goat.
 
Djokovic wasn't spectacular today. Just did enough to put away Federer. Had Federer been fresher, this would have been very close match.
Djoko will play better in the finals! He conserved energy and the conditions are cooler in final too. Novak is a massive favourite.

Tomorrow the young guns will play in hot conditions and have less time to recover!

Nadal is 9-6 against him and Federer beat him 6 times, compared to Murray beating him twice. Of course Fedal are his biggest rivals of his career.

Djoko will raise his level in the final for sure! Plus cooler conditions will help. Novak has perfect preparation for the final and extra time to rest. The young guns may play a long match in the heat tomorrow m!

I'm no djoker fan, but two things:
a. He's likely including all slams, which is fair
b. From a PR perspective, that speech was perfectly engineered to try and win over some Fed fans before the final. He's almost never that nice to Fed, but he was... and I think he's more than smart enough to be playing the game (and Kudos to him for doing it).

Well, not a surprising result - everything was really stacked against Fed; still he was very close to getting that first set. Well played, well tried, all we can ask for.

In a way I do not mind so much that Fed lost - I really would like Zverev or Thiem to get a slam, but I will never cheer against Roger. So now in the final I can cheer for a NextGen winner! Though Novak will be a big obstacle to overcome for them.

Two to three generations post Nadal & Djokovic have been the absolute worst in the history of tennis. So yes, he may keep on winning until someone from the next gen steps up and starts taking on these two and then all bets are off.
