Australian Open: Roger Federer Beats His Swiss Rival To Reach Final

After seven years!

World number 17and tennis legend, Roger Federer has seen 4th seed and compatriot, Stan Wawrinka, out of the 2017 Australian Open semi-finals in a 7-5, 6-3, 1-6, 4-6, 6-3 win. 

This would be first time he is reaching the Australian Open final since 2010.

In what will be his 100th match at the Australian Open, Federer will play the winner of Friday night’s semifinal between 2009 Melbourne champion Rafael Nadal and Bulgarian 15th seed Grigor Dimitrov.

Federer said:

I felt like everything happened so quickly. It feels amazing, I never ever in my wildest dreams thought I'd be coming this far.

You never want to play confident player but it's either Dimitrov or Rafa. 

It's real. I can actually talk about playing the finals for the first time. I've been dodging that bullet for days now.
