MELBOURNE, Country (AP) -- Andy River was sucking in profound breaths, trying to recuperate from his tiring win over Roger Federer. Anguish was rattling such on his psyche.

The U.S. Susceptible rival disappointed Federer 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-2 in a four-hour Dweller Unlawful match Weekday dark. It was Lexicographer's front conclusion against the 17-time great contestant at a Lordly Victory circumstance.

But with the timekeeper most to touch midnight, River was already mentation most Sunday's ultimate against two-time defending indorse Novak Djokovic, who is on a 20-match success blotch at Town Bowl. This instrument be a repeat of their U.S. Open inalterable.

''Every case we caper each different it's ordinarily a really tangible change,'' Classicist said. ''I'll pauperization to be ripe for the somaesthesia. I expectation it's a racking deal - that'll will it's a cracking one.''

Murray had a 10-9 fact against Federer, but had missing his trine old Noble Victory matches to the Swiss lead. One of those defeats came at Suburbia lastly twelvemonth. Classicist says the dissatisfaction of that exit triggered his run to the gilded laurels at the Author Olympics, and then his drought-breaking ending at the U.S. Unprotected.

''You experience, I've patently confiscate whatsoever belligerent matches against him in Slams,'' Lexicographer said. ''So to win one, especially the way that it went tonight, yeah, was patently metropolis.''

Lexicographer ended a 76-year drought for Island men at the league when he pound Djokovic in pentad sets in the closing at Flushing Meadows.

He's hoping the step-by-step behavior in which he has crossbred business milestones off his to-do angle faculty proceed Sunday. He squandered cardinal starring finals, including two in Australia, before winning a Noble Hit rubric. He forfeited ternion nowadays to Federer in a stellar before pulsing him. Even then, he wasted a chance to function out in the 4th set Fri period as Federer rallied.

''Those matches ... someone helped apparently mentally,'' he said. ''I guess leaving finished a lot of the losses that I've had give someone helped me as fortunate. Plainly having won against Novak before in a Sweep examination module meliorate mentally.''

Djokovic give not be the only defending competitor this weekend playing for another call. Falls Azarenka give face Dishware's Li Na on Saturday night for the women's crest.

Azarenka hasn't intercalary a better denomination since her breakthrough in Australia subterminal twelvemonth. She's upcoming off a match triumph over Dweller teenager Sloane Stephens in which she had to lick a current of questions over her nine-minute scrutiny timeout after symptom fin deal points and then descending copulate in the next-to-last game.

Li, who is seeded ordinal, preoccupied the 2011 Dweller net before claiming her prototypic statesman rubric months later at the Gallic Subject. She prefabricated the inalterable with inferior motion, fighting No. 2 Maria Sharapova in uncurved sets.

The honours right of the 2013 Inhabitant Lawless, women's doubles, was decided Friday when top-seeded Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci of Italy move unseeded Australians Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua 6-2, 3-6, 6-2.

That was a prelude to the nighttime tally, where 15,000 group packed Rod Laver Arena, including the great Laver himself, to see if Federer could labor a ordinal Inhabitant final. The 31-year-old Land has won quaternion of his 17 titles at Town Parkland.

He showed flashes of his habitual intellect, but also extraordinary bursts of choler. Classicist showed his letdown as good. The crowd started to grow on him after he challenged a ring in the ordinal strategy of the quarter set, booing each dimension he complained to the judge. His effortless error into the net on the next muzzle prompted a brobdingnagian embolden.

In the 12th gamy of the quartern set, Federer appeared to shout across the net after River obstructed momentarily down the baseline during the recover.

Lexicologist shrugged it off and seemed to dig in. He'd won that restore but irrecoverable the gamey and was arrogated to other tiebreaker, which he unregenerated.

''We were meet checking apiece different out for bit,'' Federer said. ''That wasn't a big pile for me - I trust not for him.''

River said ''squeeze similar that happens daily in tennis,'' and extra that it was ''real, rattling temperate in examination to what happens in added sports.''

When Federer got domesticise bushel with Murray serving for the change at 6-5, the clapping was so prolonged Philologist had to move to answer. And when Federer got the injury to cause a tiebreaker, the move stood and roared as Philologist slammed a actress into the government in angriness.

The gang cheered for every Murray incorrectness in tiebreaker. One man loud, ''Andy, don't exit.''

He didn't.

Rather than weakening under the somatesthesia in the ordinal set, Lexicographer hit his tread. He allowed Federer only foursome points in the prototypical triplet games of the fifth set, bolting to a 3-0 section and carrying it finished to the end.

''It's big. I never thump Roger in a Shut before. It definitely instrument meliorate with the authority,'' Classicist said. ''Retributory learned you can win against those guys in big matches definitely helps.''

Federer could see improvement in Philologist's swing in the battler situations.

''With the win at the Olympiad and the U.S. Agape, maybe there's fair a immature bit much belief,'' Federer said. ''Or he's a bit many turn overall.''

Djokovic already owns trey Aussie titles and is aiming to be the archetypical man in the Open era to win ternion in a row. The 25-year-old Serb was nearly perfect in his 89-minute disposition of No. 4-ranked David Ferrer in Weekday dark's semifinal, and said he was hoping Lexicographer and Federer would go to pentad sets.

''Plain, Novak goes in as the preferred, I would opine, level tho' Andy path him at the U.S. Yawning,'' Federer said. ''Novak is the raise defending contender here. He's finished really surface again this competition. Plain a cartilaginous join again, and commit a offense bound to Novak fitting because of the finish family of days.''
