Hyeon Chung makes Aussie Open semi-final

Ever since Sandgren became the first American male tennis player since 2010 to make the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, his social media activity has also been under scrutiny.

Addressing a news conference following his match in Melbourne on Wednesday, he read a statement and then refused to take further questions on the subject. After taking a 40-0 lead, Sandgren staged a mini comeback, saving five match points including one remarkable rally where he pulled off two amazing point-blank volleys to save the match. Nothing to do with ceremony. While players such as Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer remain alive at the Grand Slam, Sandgren's match against Chung is winnable.

Federer, the No. 2 seed and defending champion, has now beaten Berdych for the 20th time in his career. Then his second. Then his third.

However, momentum swung Sandgren's way when the world number 97 breaking twice, although he failed to serve out for the set at 5-3 as Chung hit back. But Sandgren began to get more into the contest and broke back in the fourth when Chung's forehand was wide.

"He had 3 assignments due and he just had beat Thiem and he's in Australia, and he had to knock those assignments out, and he did!" "You strip away any individuality for the sake of demonizing by way of the collective".

A member of UT's tennis team in 2010 and 2011, Sandgren is the only American male left playing singles in the slam.

"You seek to put people in these little boxes so that you can order the world in your already assumed preconceived ideas", said Sandgren, who yesterday deleted nearly all of the content on his 10,000-strong Twitter account.

"I don't know if this is a dream or not", Sandgren said on court.

"I think that helped me a lot going into this week, seeing I could play a good level".

For a composed Federer, it was business as normal. Sandgren also had other tweets in which he appeared to be rooting against Williams in matches. At the end of the first set it started hurting more, so I had to just deal with it until the end of the match. "I knew I had to take my chances, he's a heck of a player". I think it's crazy to assume that.

Kerber's semifinal opponent will be top-ranked Simona Halep or No. 6 Karolina Pliskova.

A former University of Tennessee tennis standout has become the talk of the Australian Open, one of the sport's Grand Slam tournaments.

The match is being played on the Rod Laver Arena at around 2am GMT on Wednesday, January 24 (1pm local time).
