Djokovic's win-loss record as top seed at the Australian Open following his 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 win over Pouille. It's the most wins without a loss by a top seed men's player at a single Grand Slam in the Open Era (since 1968).


Djokovic's win-loss record in Australian Open semi-finals now stands at 7-0, the second-best at a single slam in the Open Era. Only Nadal's 11-0 record at the French Open is better, while Bjorn Borg's record at the French Open and at Wimbledon is 6-0.


Djokovic's win-loss record at Grand Slams after winning the first two sets has now improved to 190-1. His lone loss came against Jurgen Melzer in the quarterfinals of the 2010 French Open. At the Australian Open, Djokovic's record after winning the first two sets now stands at 51-0.


Djokovic has now made his 24th Grand Slam final, the third-most among men in the Open Era, after Roger Federer (30) and Nadal (25).


Djokovic is now the fifth player - and first man - in the Open Era to win multiple 6-0 sets in a Grand Slam semi-final. Serena Williams has three such sets, while Elene Dementieva, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario and Margaret Court Arena also have two each.


Additionally, Djokovic now has 15 bagel (6-0) opening sets in his Grand Slam career, the most among men in the Open Era.


The number of games lost by Djokovic, the second-fewest in an Australian Open men's semifinal, alongside the four dropped by Stefan Edberg against Mats Wilander in 1990. Wilander himself dropped just three games in beating Johan Kriek to make the final in 1984.


Nadal and Djokovic dropped just 10 games combined in their semifinal wins, the second-fewest combined games lost by men's Grand Slam semifinal winners in the Open Era. Borg and Guillermo Vilas dropped a combined nine games in making the final of the 1978 French Open.
