Seldom have we seen players and athletes making a comeback after they have reached to their mid-thirties. Roger Federer have made such a comeback after struggling for past 6 months from injuries. In a tournament that has already witnessed two huge surprises in the initial rounds, the 35-year megastar continued to do an excellent impression of vintage Roger Federer. Defeating the 5th seeded Japan’s Kei Nishikori in the round of 16 and navigating past Germany’s Mischa Zverev in quarters, Fed has now reached the semi-finals. The 5-setter match which lasted for 3 hours and 24 minutes, after a while was all about pushing the physical limits. Now that the six-time Australian open champion and reigning world no. 1 Andy Murray both have already joined the sidelines, Federer has a great chance towards his 18th major title. Federer will meet his compatriot Stan Wawrinka in the next match. Let’s see if he continues this golden comeback or becomes yet another victim of the Australian Open.
