World number 4 Stan Wawrinka and top seed Novak Djokovic will fight for a spot in the Australian Open final when they face each other in the semi finals later today.

Andy Murray is through to the final after his win over Tomas Berdych yesterday and these two individuals will now strut their stuff to secure that tie against Murray.

Djokovic took only one hour and 55 minutes to defeat Milos Raonic in the quarters, with a 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 6-2 win while Wawrinka also secured victory on straight sets, dumping Japan’s Kei Nishikori out of the tournament with a 6-3 6-4 7-6 (8-6) victory.

Both men last faced each other at the 2013 US Open, though Wawrinka lost that clash to Djokovic in a thrilling 5 det match.
