MELBOURNE - Defending champion Roger Federer on Thursday was crashed out of Australian Open in semi final.

World No 2 Federer, who is playing his 8th consecutive Australian Open semifinal, was defeated by third seed Serbian Novak Djokovic 7-6 7-5 6-4 in exactly three hours.

Djokovic ends the Swiss' bid to become the second man in history to win five Australian Open titles. The last man to do so was Yor Emerson, who won his 5th Australian title in 1966 before he went on to win his 6th Australian title in 1967.

Serbian Djokovic will next meet either 5th seed British Andy Murray or 7th seed Spanish David Ferrer in final.
