Tennis legend Roger Federer, 36, makes semifinals of Australian Open for the 14th time
I’m so happy!
Roger Federer, my tennis hero, is now two matches away from winning a record 20th grand slam title and a record-tying sixth Australian Open crown.
This is happening at the age of 36.
Fed beat Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals earlier today by a score of 7-6 (1), 6-3, 6-4 victory. This sets up a semifinal Friday against unseeded Hyeon Chung of South Korea.
A victory in Melbourne would put Fed very close to reclaiming the number one ranking for the first time since 2012. He could overtake current number one Rafael Nadal in March.
