Melbourne - During Novak Djokovic's Australian Open quarter-final, a photo of his three-month-old son started making the rounds on social media.

The photo posted by his wife showed the hairless head of young Stefan in a baby chair, with knit booties and a giraffe blanket watching his dad play tennis on TV.

On-court interviewer Jim Courier asked the No 1-ranked player about his No 1 fan after the match, directing his attention to the big screens overhead at Rod Laver Arena.

Djokovic looked up to see the picture of his son, and smiled.

"See how he enjoys watching TV? He's daddy's boy definitely," said Djokovic after beating the big-serving Milos Raonic 7-6 (7/5), 6-4, 6-2, to advance to his 25th Grand Slam semi-final.

"I didn't know he was watching me this way, but I felt his energy. So that helped me tonight, definitely."
