Then it’s finally time for the semi-finals of the Australian Open and on this half hardly the semi-final we’ve expected in advance. Alexander Zverev, Stan Wawrinka or Novak Djokovic? No, Roger Federer will meet the South Korean Hyeon Chung.
The law has obviously haunted the young tennis talent, which obviously meant to take this season by storm. He has been promising for several years now, but never felt ripe to seriously challenge. Previously he has gone to the second round in a Grand Slam and now he is in a semifinal. Incredible.
If there’s any tournament you’re going to do, it’s the Australian Open, which has the little unique feature that it’s the tennis season’s first real tournament. It often makes us see some peels, but this year has been incredible. On their way to the semifinal, Hyeon Chung has released players like Daniil Medveded, both (!) Brothers Zverev and Novak Djokovic. Then I deserve to go to semifinal.
Roger Federer looks steady
Now, however, is the expected toughest challenge so far. The eternal young Roger Federer has been magnificent even in this tournament and even if there appears to be some grief – strange would be otherwise – the Swiss is as stable as you can expect from him.
With over 80% won points in his first reserve and an effective second reserve, he is as hard-tempered as usual, even if he has been broken a part. However, it should be said that he has also been very strong in receiving services – just like always. In fact, both players have their strength, in the constant ability to break one another.
