Djokovic led by two sets to one when play was halted on Friday evening and the Serb returned under the Centre Court roof to win the second longest men's semi-final in Wimbledon history at five hours and 14 minutes.
The 12-time Grand Slam winner, who lifted the Wimbledon trophy in 2011, 2014 and 2015, is back in a major final for the first time since the 2016 US Open.
