Points won by each set: [ 28-12, 28-17, 27-15 ]
Points won directly behind the serve:
33 % Djokovic – 18 of 53
24 % Pouille – 18 of 64
Their first meeting and the Serb  brutally exposed Pouille’s modest backhand. The Frenchman  had only optimistic start – hit two winners to lead 30/15 on return. Djokovic felt such an overwhelming advantage that almost in every game risked his second serve at least once, not committing a double fault (struck two aces off the second serves). It’s the third time in history of the modern Australian Open that both semifinals completely disappointed # In the Open Era only once the semifinal losers won fewer games, it occurred at Roland Garros ’78 when Borg beat Barazzutti dropping just one game and Vilas defeated Stockton 6-3 6-3 6-2, so nine games then, ten games now.
