Novak Djokovic reached a fifth Australian Open final, avenged a long and arduous loss to Stan Wawrinka and ensured he'd renew an old rivalry with Andy Murray. The top-ranked Djokovic was so absorbed in the moment, he lost track of the score during Friday's semifinal. His mental lapse after the third set probably cost him the fourth, but the four-time Australian Open champion recovered with three service breaks in the fifth set to beat defending champion Wawrinka 7-6 (1), 3-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-0. ''Sometimes these things happen, you get carried away by a moment,'' Djokovic said, trying to explain his perplexed expression after he'd taken a lead of two sets to one.

Carroll said during a joint news conference with New England coach Bill Belichick that family comes first and ''if (Sherman) is faced with that decision, we'll support him.'' ''He has an opportunity to face a big decision and whenever our players have a personal, family issue that comes up it's always about family first and they can decide what is best for them and I support that,'' Carroll said.

Peyton Manning is still mulling his future in the NFL. At a breakfast Friday to receive the Bart Starr Award, the five-time MVP said he still hasn't made a decision about whether he'll return to the Denver Broncos next season. After the season-ending 24-13 loss to Indianapolis in the divisional playoffs, Manning made no guarantees about coming back for another season - a change of heart from a month previous, when he said he had every intention of returning. Broncos executive vice president John Elway told Manning to take his time before deciding.
