But I'm sure we're going to have a good final. There's no better thing that's happened in my life.

"She is the right state of mind, she knows everything about tennis", he insisted. "Every professional athlete wants to be in that zone where everything flows so effortlessly and you are executing automatically everything that you are intending to execute".

Mauresmo noted that while wins over Raonic in the quarters and No. 11 Borna Coric in the fourth round were impressive, Pouille is going to need a new level in his Friday showdown with Djokovic.

"It felt like a different dimension of tennis completely", a shocked Tsitsipas told reporters after the match. "When he's like this, he's unbelievable", he said.

It took Pouille more than a half-hour to merely grab one game, and spectators roared, likely relieved at the prospect of a more competitive, not to mention longer, match. "Maybe one or two".

Of course, as a former world No. 1 and a champion at the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2006, Mauresmo's playing credentials speak for themselves.

Djokovic came out on top in a five-set thriller in a 2012 Australian Open decider against Nadal which took just seven minutes shy of six hours to settle. Djokovic won it. By way of contrast, their two rampant semi-finals in this tournament lasted just more than three hours in total.

"He's my biggest rival in my career".

"I actually talked with him 45 minutes before the match".

Djokovic said some matches against Nadal had been turning points in his career.

Pouille became Djokovic's 28th successive French victim at the Grand Slams but there was little shame in losing to a man seemingly at the peak of his powers. "After a lot of months without playing is probably this court, this crowd it gives me that unbelievable energy". It makes you alert from the very first point. "I think people will enjoy it". "He doesn't allow you to ease your way into the match".

The world No1 only needed 83 minutes to beat Frenchman Lucas Pouille 6-0 6-2 6-2 to reach a seventh Australian Open final.

Djokovic said battles against Nadal over the years have made the Serb the player he is today.

As a 14-time Grand Slam champion and six-time victor at Melbourne Park, Djokovic doesn't need any help when it comes to having success in Australia.

The second stanza was on serve at 2-2 when Nadal pulled off the shot of the tournament, a running forehand around the net post from nearly behind the umpire's chair on his way to earning three break points.

Nadal simply let his racket do the talking, and he pounded a forehand deep into the corner to break the shaggy-haired tyro in the third game.

"That's why I worked very hard to be in the finals of the tournament, final of the major". But he also has a game that fits my game pretty well.
