"[Ferrer's] a great competitor, I have a lot of respect for him," said Djokovic. "It's definitely a huge relief to get through that match.
"He handled the windy conditions much better than I did but I'm just really happy to get to another Grand Slam final."
When asked about his final against Murray, the Serbian insisted that neither player has an advantage over the other.
"It's the final of a Grand Slam, there's no clear favourite," he added.
Djokovic is looking to win his second Slam of the year following his success at the Australian Open in January.
