MELBOURNE, Australia - Novak Djokovic did enough to beat defending champion Stan Wawrinka in a semifinal match that lacked the intensity of their recent five-setters, setting up an Australian Open final against long-time friend and rival Andy Murray.The top-ranked Djokovic beat Wawrinka in a peculiarly seesawing 7-6 (1), 3-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 match Friday night to ensure two members of the so-called Big Four will meet the season-opening Grand Slam final.Djokovic has a 100 per cent winning record in finals at Melbourne Park, claiming his first Grand Slam title here in 2008 and winning three straight years from 2011 before his streak was ended in the quarterfinals last year by Wawrinka.The previous three Grand Slam meetings between Djokovic and Wawrinka had gone five sets, including two at the Australian Open that lasted a combined nine hours. Unlike those, though, the Friday night encounter was relatively muted and Wawrinka even described it as Strange. Not the best, for sure.There were parts of the match where I stepped in and played a game I needed to play, but parts of the match where I played too defensive and allowed him to dictate, Djokovic said. So, yeah, it was very emotional, very tense, as it always is against a top player in semifinals of a Grand Slam.So the battle was great ... in terms of fighting from both sides .. but the level of performance was not where I wanted it to be.Djokovic improved his record to 17 wins in 20 matches against Wawrinka, who will drop to No. 9 in the rankings next week.Djokovic has beaten Murray in seven of their last eight matches and is 15-8 overall, but theyre level in Grand Slam finals with two wins apiece — Djokovic in Australia in 2011 and 13 and Murray at the 2012 U.S. Open and Wimbledon in 2013.Wawrinka made his career breakthrough here last year, when he beat Djokovic, Tomas Berdych and Rafael Nadal to claim his first Grand Slam title, but he hadnt been past the quarterfinals at a major since his return to Melbourne Park.Theres no pressure for that. Im surprised we went five sets again, he said. But, no, for sure we had some great battle here last two years. Today was strange match. He was there playing good enough to win and he deserve to win and play the final.At times Wawrinka got on top of Djokovic, who looked lethargic at times and didnt realize after winning the third set that hed taken a 2-1 lead. But Djokovic kept his composure in the 3-hour, 30-minute match as Wawrinka blasted 42 winners but offset that with 69 unforced errors. Djokovic hit 27 winners — none in the fourth set — and finished with 49 unforced errors.The momentum shifted suddenly in three of the five sets, with both players struggling to turn service breaks into big leads. Djokovic was broken once in each of the first three sets and twice in the fourth. He broke Wawrinka seven times in the match, including three in the last set.Sixth-seeded Murray, who has lost three Australian Open finals, moved into the championship match with a fiery four-set win over No. 7 Tomas Berdych on Thursday night.Djokovic said hes going to have to improve considerably to maintain his perfect record in Australian Open finals.I think I have much more positive things to reflect on in my game and then all the matches that I played so far in the tournament than the negative, he said. Im in the finals. In the end of the day, thats why Im here. Getting to the finals in any way possible is a great achievement. Im going to try to use that to build up of the confidence for finals.

Mark Trumbo Jersey .C. -- Lucy Li made two double bogeys, a triple bogey and finished her historic round at the U. Andrew Cashner Jersey . On Monday night, many fans in this city placed the blame squarely on the captain for his role in the James Neal overtime winner against the Pittsburgh Penguins.ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues placed star forward Alex Steen on the injured list Saturday because of a concussion and are cautiously optimistic. General manager Doug Armstrong said the NHLs No. 2 goal scorer will be out indefinitely. Armstrong announced the move, made retroactive to Dec. 21, in a statement before the teams game with Chicago. "I say indefinitely because it could be day to day or week to week," Armstrong said during the morning skate. "Theres no set timetable, but he is exercising and we hope he has a speedy recovery." Steen hasnt played since he left a game against Edmonton on Dec. 21 with what the team called an "upper-body injury." Its the second concussion with the Blues for Steen, who will not accompany the team on a two-game trip to Dallas and Minnesota. "Were going to want to take our time," Armstrong said. "Were hoping that its not a long-term thing." Steen is the Blues leading scorer with 24 goals and 38 points in 35 games. He has six game-winning goals, second most in the league. The Blues believe Steens symptoms began with a hit by Ottawas Zack Smith on Dec. 16. Smith was penalized for an illegal check tto the head but the NHL did not review the play.dddddddddddd Steen also took a high hit from the Canadiens Douglas Murray on Dec. 19 and the last came from former teammate David Perron of Edmonton. "Hes such a big part of our team," said forward Jaden Schwartz, who has taken Steens spot on the Blues top line with David Backes and T.J. Oshie. "He plays in all situations, hes a big leader, so its definitely tough." The Swede is in his ninth season. He signed a three-year $17.4 million contract extension this month. Forward Sergey Andronov was recalled under emergency conditions from Chicago (AHL). The 24-year-old Andronov was a third-round pick in the 2009 draft has 13 points on seven goals and six assists in 28 games. Steen missed 39 games with a concussion in 2011-12 from a hit against the Phoenix Coyotes on Dec. 23, 2011. "I think wed be just as careful if it was his first one," Armstrong said. "Any time you deal with a head injury, you want to be cautious and thats what we want to do with Alexander." The Blues anticipated forward Vladimir Sobotka would return Saturday from an upper-body injury.
