Roger Federer pulled off one of many best escapes of his profession Tuesday, saving seven match factors to return from two units down and beat Tennys Sandgren for a spot within the Australian Open semi-finals.
In a drama-packed match, the usually ice-cool Swiss was slapped with a coded warning for swearing and wanted a uncommon medical timeout for a thriller damage earlier than successful 6-3, 2-6, 2-6, 7-6 (10/8), 6-3.
His reward is a showdown in opposition to both long-time rival and seven-time champion Novak Djokovic or big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic.
