Federer blows away Korean giant killer for Aussie Open final

28 January 2018

Federer will now face Marin Cilic on Sunday in the final as he goes in search of a stunning 20th Grand Slam title on Sunday and hopes to defend the Australian Open which he won 12 months ago.

World No.56 Chung, the first South Korean to advance into the singles semi-finals of a Grand Slam tournament, pulled the plug after feeling pain in his left foot, reports Efe. He (Cilic) brings power, basically everything. "Over the last few days, it was blister under blister under blister", said Chung at his post-match press conference.

Cilic came through his semi-final against Englishman Kyle Edmund in straight sets, having breezed through the quarter-final stages after world No.1 Rafael Nadal retired hurt in the fifth set with a hip complaint.

The closest Cilic has come to beating Federer since then was the 2016 Wimbledon quarterfinals, as he took the 19-time major victor to five sets. Cilic looks to win his second career grand slam title and his first since the 2014 US Open.

Woakes, who has chipped in with four wickets and 92 runs in the series, added: 'Trevor [Bayliss] and Morgy have mentioned it. Most of the rotation however was with bowlers, which is unusual given batting is where the line-up has struggled most.

Interestingly, Dabrowski will now be on the other side of the net when Bopanna will strive to win his maiden title at the Rod Laver Arena.

The Australian Open 2018 Men's final takes place on Sunday at 7:30pm (8:30am, GMT).

The Swiss was playing his 106th match at the event while Chung was competing in only the 100th of his entire career at the Tour level.

'Please understand. I wish all the best luck for Roger Federer in the finals'. Because he [Chung] has played so many matches in the row, I think that's why it was a build-up.

"I'm pleased that my game has been good from the very beginning of the tournament so far". "After the year I had last year, it's incredible".

The one thing about Golden State though - they do let teams stick around, and Minnesota is talented enough to stick around. The moves come amid a 3-10 skid that has dropped the Central Division leaders to 27-19, just two games ahead of the Pacers.

He is the first South Korean to reach the last four at a Grand Slam and excited at the prospect of playing Federer, who is yet to drop a set. "I'm just happy I'm in the final, to be honest".

"I didn't feel I was facing a guy who had just lost two round-robin matches".

But it came as a big surprise when the 21-year-old walked to the net at 30-30 and trailing 2-5 in the second set to concede defeat. I think I've done everything pretty well, you know.

But he admits Cilic is risky and will be better than their last meeting.
