The world No. 1 beat his French opponent 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 in a brilliant display to advance to his 24th Grand Slam final.
It was an even more efficient last-four display than Nadal's drubbing of Stefanos Tsitsipas on Thursday.
The Spaniard came through in one hour, 46 minutes, while Djokovic wrapped up victory in one hour, 23 minutes.

And he was a break behind again in no time as he simply could not live with Djokovic's hitting.
The victory was routine for Djokovic as he broke again to win the second set 6-2 before producing a carbon copy display in the third to take the match.
There was nothing routine about the performance, though:
The top seed has not been at his best throughout the tournament, but he seems to have found top form at the perfect moment, and he will need perfection if he is to beat Nadal.
