Chung Hyeon creates history, reaches Australian Open semi-final for first time

Switzerland's Roger Federer hits a return against France's Richard Gasquet during their men's singles third round match on day six of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne

Switzerland's Roger Federer hits a return against France's Richard Gasquet during their men's singles third round match on day six of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne

My arms are not like his arms.

However, momentum swung Sandgren's way when the world number 97 breaking twice, although he failed to serve out for the set at 5-3 as Chung hit back. He hasn't lost to the Czech veteran since Dubai in 2013.

Lleyton Hewitt's return to the Australian Open has come to an end, albeit much later than he was expecting.

It is exciting to see whether he can continue his string of victories against tennis greats, though regardless of the outcome, it is nearly certain that Chung, just 22 years old, has a bright future ahead.

"The Rod Laver crowd have just been ordered to evacuate", he said.

As the scheduling controversy continues to swirl around Melbourne Park following questions surrounding Roger Federer's "leverage" over Open officials, McEnroe has declared the No. 14 seed deserves better from the tournament he's won six times.

"To beat him here is one of the tough things to do in our sport", Federer said.

"I'm looking forward to play against him".

In the end, it was Chung who progressed to the semifinals in straight sets, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3.

Henman, who is here attending a Grand Slam event other than Wimbledon for the first time in 10 years, was very impressed by Edmund's quarter-final victory over the world No 3, Grigor Dimitrov, and is by no means ruling out another upset on Thursday.

Halep has overcome her challenges so far at Melbourne Park.

Before this month's Australian Open, Tennys Sandgren mostly received attention because of his name. Her older sister, Venus Williams, was beaten in the first round. "If I win one more point, I make history in Korea".

"We have changed some technical things on his serve, which he's a lot more comfortable with now", said South African Godwin, who ended his partnership with big-serving compatriot Kevin Anderson previous year. Now that the week is coming to a close tonight I am going to make some predictions for what I see happening in week two.

"It's not easy to come off some big wins, biggest wins of my career, insane stages, like quarterfinals of a Slam", Sandgren said.

Asked why she was taking this defeat in stride, she replied, "I'm evolving".

With a disappointing tournament for Nadal, we wonder whether we will ever see the iconic sleeveless shirt worn by the Spaniard again.

Next stop for Federer is Hyeon Chung, who continued his historic run at the Australian Open, proving too good for Tennys Sandgren in the quarter-finals on Wednesday. He finally closed out a lengthy final game by converting on his sixth match point. Nadal retired in the fifth set due to a hip injury.

With Rafael Nadal gone, limping out of his quarterfinal against Marin Cilic on Tuesday night with an upper-leg injury, Federer is, of course, the heavy favorite to win the title.

"Fact: Novak Djokovic did not request a specific time slot for his matches".

The chair umpire promptly made a phone call and received the all-clear minutes later. Thanks for your patience. I'm happy I got out of that first set. It ended up being the key to the match'. Struggling with poor eyesight from a young age, he would blink constantly and an optometrist diagnosed him with myopia and astigmatism, suggesting Chung should play tennis as seeing the green court would help. "You know why - it's pretty simple. She's fighting until the last point". Those are two major aspects to the game. The form player in the women's draw, Kerber is yet to lose in 2018, having won the Sydney International title ahead of the year's first major.
