Djoker makes Wawrinka ‘clown’


New Delhi: Novak Djokovic will face Andy Murray in the final of the Australian Open for the third time in five years after edging another five-set thriller with the defending champion Stanlius Wawrinka.

The four-time winner Djokovic had not dropped a set on his way to the semi-finals but was made to dig deep to win 7-6, (7-1), 3-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 in exactly three and a half hours on Rod Laver Arena.

“As it was the last two years we played five sets, I was ready for the battle,” Djokovic said in an on-court interview. “It was a great battle, we pushed each other to the limit and credit to Stan for playing well,” added Novak.
