Melbourne: Supremely confident Novak Djokovic says he is feeling fitter and fresher than he did carrying last year's leviathan workload as he sits back and waits for Sunday's Australian Open final.

Djokovic demolished Spanish world number four-elect David Ferrer in less than 90 minutes in Thursday's one-sided semi-final to clinch his third straight Australian final appearance.
