#AusOpen Chung Hyeon stuns Zverev to make history for South Korea

Switzerland's Roger Federer celebrates beating Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych in their men's singles quarter-finals match on day 10 of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne

Federer said serving consistency was a big thing in top- level tennis of fine margins between players.

Federer, the defending champion in Melbourne, was given his toughest test of the tournament against the world number 31 but still came through comfortably, winning 6-2 7-5 6-4. It was a comparatively comfortable game for the Serb, who made easy work of his opponent to get himself over the line. It's a great way to go out, ' Will told the media. That's why the players get frustrated with the whole grand slam situation because we don't have a seat at the table.

Having arrived in Melbourne 12 months ago not knowing what to expect from himself following a six-month break to recuperate his knee, this time around Federer is confident in both mind and body.

But he said the conditions were at the point where it becomes a "danger in terms of health".

The match was originally scheduled for Rod Laver Arena, but was moved to Margaret Court Arena due to a backlog of long matches at the larger venue.

And Will Ferrell will certainly remember his trip to 's, receiving a plush toy wombat during a press conference on Thursday.

As usual, the 36-year-old Federer stayed classy, and tried and make the conversation funny. The Austrian lost a tie-break in the opener but fought back to win 6-7 (6-8) 3-6 6-2 6-2 6-3. He ended the year as world #2.

It was a landmark win for 26-year-old Sandgren, who had never won a Grand Slam match prior to arriving in Australia and will face young German Maximilian Marterer in the last 32.

Federer was struck down with back trouble last year when he lost to Alexander Zverev in the final of the Montreal Masters and subsequently withdrew from the Cincinnati Masters.

However, he recovered soon after and continued his game, taking the attack to Ramos-Vinolas who struggled for a foothold and eventually folded.

Ninth-seeded Johanna Konta also struggled in a straight-set loss to lucky loser Bernarda Pera, an American who is ranked 123rd and making her Grand Slam debut.

Their 2010 match at the All-England Club was their only previous meeting.

In 2012, he won a silver medal in the Summer Olympics.

Gasquet stayed in touch before surrendering his serve at 6-5 which saw Federer take a two-set lead. You had a good off-season.

The Fed Express rolls on. Once again, the fans cackled at every one of Federer's one-liners.
