Novak Djokovic continues his bid to win a 10th Australian Open title when he takes on Tommy Paul in the semi-finals on Friday.

Djokovic has been in supreme form since overcoming a troublesome hamstring injury and thrashed both Alex De Minaur and Andrey Rublev in straight sets to reach another Australian Open semi-final.

The 35-year-old has won all nine of his previous Australian Open semi-final matches and is the strong favourite ahead of his meeting with the American Paul, who will be playing in his first grand slam semi-final.

Djokovic has been caught up in fresh controversy in Melbourne after his father was filmed posing with Vladimir Putin supporters at the Australian Open on Wednesday.

The match is scheduled to take place at 8:30am GMT on Friday 27 January, following the other semi-final between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Karen Khachanov.
