Novak Djokovic made sure he was in front of the television for at least part of the match which determined his finals opponent for the Australian Open.
Four-time winner Roger Federer and eager Brit Andy Murray were the object of his interest as they faced off in a high-voltage semi.
Djokovic said that he's as much a fan as a player when it comes to other players' matches. "I'll pay more attention because I'm going to play the winner of that match," he said of the semi.
"I'm going to do analysis and make the notes, and see whoever I play against to get the right tactics for the match."
Djokovic, the top seed, earned his place with a thrashing of Spain's David Ferrer, whose destiny seems to stall at the No. 4 ranking. The scampering Spaniard had said before the match that the big four players were all better than him - and he was proved correct in a rout taking 89 minutes and costing Djokovic just five games in three sets.
Djokovic said that when he's in front of the TV he reacts just like any other fan. "I love tennis, tennis is my life. I'm not just a player, I'm also a fan of this sport.
"I love to see these big matches. When Federer and Murray and (Rafael) Nadal are playing, those are the special kind of matches in Grand Slams."
