Roger Federer is just two victories away from winning a record Grand Slam title No. 20. The Swiss Master will have to contend with rising Korean star Hyeon Chung Friday in the second semi-final of the 2018 Australian Open.
The winner of the Federer vs Chung match will face 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic in Sunday’s final. Federer is currently the odds-on favourite to repeat as Australian Open champion, a year after defeating arch rival Rafael Nadal in a memorable five-set final. The 36-year-old Federer will become the second oldest player in the Open Era to win at Melbourne Park.
Regardless of Friday’s result, Chung’s rise to stardom is the most prominent storyline from the first Grand Slam of the year. En route the semi-final, Chung upset the likes of World No. 4 Alexander Zverev and 6-time champion Novak Djokovic before overcoming America’s Tennys Sandgren in the quarter-final.
Ranked No.58 in the world, Chung is the lowest-ranked player to make an Australian Open semi-final since Russia’s Marat Safin in 2004. The 21-year-old South Korean first burst into the spotlight last November when he defeated Russia’s rising star Andrey Rublev to clinch the inaugural Next Generation ATP Finals. Though American tennis great John McEnroe expects Chung to win Grand Slams in the future, he’s not giving the youngster a shot against Federer on Friday.
