Rafa Nadal with Novak Djokovic

A rampant Novak Djokovic completed a stunning 6-0 6-2 6-2 demolition of Lucas Pouille on Friday to storm into his seventh Australian Open final.

The victory set up a mouth-watering title match with arch-rival Rafa Nadal.

The six-times champion was at his devastating best in the one hour-23 minute procession as he gave the hapless Pouille a brutal lesson in Grand Slam tennis.

He thus extended his perfect semi-finals record to 7-0 at Melbourne Park.

Attacking the lines with machine-like precision, Djokovic broke the 28th-seeded Frenchman seven times and yet never looked in danger of conceding a break point.

Top seed Djokovic claimed the match on the second match point when Pouille netted and the Serb will face Nadal in search of a record seventh title in Melbourne.
