Novak Djokovic took another step to defending his Australian Open title with a dominant display against big-hitting Canadian Milos Raonic.  

The world No 2 came through 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 in the final match of the day on the Rod Laver Arena to set up a mouth-watering semi-final against long-standing rival Roger Federer. 

It will be the pair's 50th career meeting and given he edges their head to head 26 to 23, Djokovic, with the knowledge that Federer has already faced two five-set matches at this tournament, will be confident of reaching Sunday's final.
