Alexander Zverev is into the final four

The victor of the last two grand slams, Djokovic has been unstoppable in recent months and crushed Zverev 6-2 6-1 to set up a final meeting with either Roger Federer or Borna Coric.

The 37-year-old will next face Croatian power-hitter Borna Coric, who dumped Australia's Matthew Ebden out of the tournament 7-5 6-4.

Djokovic climbed to number two in the ATP rankings with his semi-final defeat of Alexander Zverev and this victory 24 hours later was his 18th in a row.

And even though Federer provided some early resistance in Coric's match-winning service, the 20-time grand-slam champion could not find a breakthrough to survive. "It's going to be definitely a close match".

But Djokovic won his 26th straight set to clinch his fourth title of 2018 and go just 35 points behind Rafael Nadal in the ATP Race for London.

Having needed three sets to get beyond Daniil Medvedev and Roberto Bautista Agut in his last two outings, Federer appeared in danger of needing a decider again when he trailed 4-1 in the second-set tie-break.

"I saw Kei was playing extremely aggressive, especially towards the end of the second set", said the Swiss world number two, who has been content with his form this week despite being pushed to three sets in his other two matches.

"Where I was about four months ago and where I am today is quite an extreme opposite".

Djokovic is targeting his 72nd career title here on Sunday.

Federer won the Australian Open at the start of this year but has had a mediocre season by his sky-high standards.
