  • Tennis- Australian Open- Semifinals- Rod Laver Arena Melbourne Australia

Tennis has seen some incredible stories in the past with unseeded players winning big tournaments and classic matches that live on in the memory for a lifetime.

"And you know Federer can make anyone look silly and it's not much fun going out there and being jerked around the court very quickly". "The thought process is not like 'What would have been better?' That's why this one feels bittersweet".

Federer and Chung all set to begin their semi-final Melbourne.

"He's played such a wonderful tournament, so credit to him for playing so hard again today".

"There's clearly a lot he is going to have to improve to match it with players like Federer".

In nine meetings with Cilic, Federer has lost only once, in the semi-finals of the 2014 US Open, when the Croatian won his only Grand Slam title.

Hyeon Chung may have limped out of this year's Australian Open, but his upbeat mood made clear he firmly believes he'll be a contender at another major very soon.

It was heartbreak at Wimbledon a year ago, but at Melbourne Park the big Croat has been in impeccable form.

As for Roger Federer, he looks to add a 20th Grand Slam win.

But it took a toll.

"In the second set, I felt he was getting slower".

But after being steamrolled by the Swiss master through the better part of two sets, Chung abruptly pulled the pin two games after taking a medical time-out to have his foot strapped. I think I've done everything pretty well. And witnessing that rivalry from its roots at the forefront is one of the most unlikeliest of candidates - Australian Open semi-finalist Hyeon Chung.

"I don't think people really get how much we have to put the work in, how much we dedicate ourselves to get better".

Federer predicted a bright future for Chung, who also will be more prepared next time for the rigors of the best-of-five set tennis at the Grand Slams. "For sure, I played really good in the last two weeks". "I make a first round of 16, quarters and semis". From the return, moving, forehand, backhand, serving, I think everything is in good, solid spot. He also sensed something wrong with Chung's movement.

Federer advances to Sunday's match against No. 6-seeded Marin Cilic, the 30th career appearance in a final for Federer.

Beforehand, he came from two sets to one down to defeat world number one Rafael Nadal after the Spaniard retired at 0-2 down in the final set; this marked only Cilic's second win against the King of Clay and first since 2009.

Earlier, Timea Babos of Hungary and Kristina Mladenovic of France became the first players from their respective countries to lift the Australian Open women's doubles crown.
