It might be a case of the same old faces battling it out in the latter stages of a Grand Slam event, but the 38 year-old Federer has been made to dig deep to reach the last four this year.

Federer had already come through a grueling five-set battle against Australian John Millman in the third round, where he trailed 8-4 in the 10-point match tie-break before edging home.

The Swiss legend cut things even finer in his quarter-final against the American Tennys Sandgren, in which he saved seven match points before finally coming through 6-3 2-6 2-6 7-6 (10-8) 6-3 in three hours and 28 minutes against the world number 100.

Betting Odds - Winner

By contrast, Djokovic had a relatively straightforward quarter-final against big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic to win 6-4 6-3 7-6 (7-1). Defending champion Djokovic, who is looking to win an eighth Australian Open title, has dropped just one set in five matches to date and has yet to lose a match in 2020.

Djokovic currently leads Federer in the head-to-head 26-23 and recent form would strongly suggest that he should extend that lead with another win here as far as prediction for this match are concerned.
