Federer Into Australian Open Final

The defending Champion Roger Federer is into his 7th Australian Open final on Sunday after South Korean Chung Hyeon retired in the second set with Federer leading the match 6-1 5-2. Chung had received treatment for a blister on his left foot three games earlier.

Roger who is yet to drop a single set so far at the championship is seeking his sixth Australian Open title and 20th Grand Slam title. In the final his opponent is big seeing Marin Cilic from Croatia who defeated Kyle Edmund in straight sets in the other semi-final 6-2 7-6 6-2. The final is a repeat of the Wimbledon 2017 final where Roger was victorious in the one sided encounter.
