Serbia's Novak Djokovic celebrates winning his semi final match against

The 21-year-old German, who was booed by indignant Roger Federer fans after beating their idol 24 hours earlier, saw off the world number one 6-4 6-3 to the delight of the vast majority at London's 02.

"I've had most success in my career in Australia", said Djokovic, who has won six times in Melbourne.

"I'm not ready to coach but I would like to call a play or two next season if the Browns need ideas!" Over the past week he has not lost a single set.

"I felt bad for Zverev because you could see that he didn't deserve to be booed".

After pulling off one of the biggest wins of his career, Alexander Zverev was left apologizing for an unforced error he didn't make.

It's been only three months since they paired up, but given Lendl's success with Andy Murray, Zverev is optimistic big things are in the offing. The eventual tie-break went with serve until the 10th point, when Federer netted to hand Zverev a mini-break - an advantage he did not squander.

Zverev takes on Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final and will be hoping to receive a warm reception tomorrow to put the controversy to bed.

It might've taken the world's second-ranked global side to break down the perennial champions New Zealand but in the run-up to next year's Rugby World Cup in Japan the Irish - winning their first-ever match on home soil against the All Blacks - showed that they have the potential to go the distance in the world's pre-eminent rugby competition.

The dominant Djokovic continued in the same vein in the second set, breaking Anderson in the first and fifth games to move into touching distance of a place in the final. Obviously today was not a great day for us, but if we put things in perspective it was an wonderful year, a great comeback and thank you guys for helping me to get to where I am.

"I really can't describe it".

Having ended a two-year Grand Slam title drought by defeating Anderson in the Wimbledon final, Djokovic went on to win his 14th major trophy at the U.S. Open and has already sealed the year-end No. 1 ranking.

"I must tell you I'm very proud that at 37 I'm still so competitive and so happy playing tennis", he added. Zverev downs Djokovic in ATP Finals. I knew I had to take care of my service games, because he's serving really well. Last year, Zverev was a five-time title-holder, an effort that propelled him into the top five for the first time.

"We had epic matches throughout our rivalry but this one definitely ranks as one of the best matches we played", Djokovic told a news conference.
