Think its setup for a Wawrinka v Nadal final.... although i hope its a Federer/Nadal one instead,
Brilliant from Roger, would love him to win the whole thing now.
Massive bottle job from Murray.
I'd love to see Federer win another GS
So refreshing and pleasant to see serve and volley disrupts the rhythm of a baseliner, give Misha Zverev his dues. Murray couldn't get into rhythm as he was required to return and played passing shots, quick points that halted his ground stroke tempo. His issues compounded when Misha when stayed back at the rallies, gave him balls with no pace and therefore Murray had to create his own pace, double dose of venom and smart smart tactics from MZ.
If Federer somehow loses the first set, I expect him to attack the net as serve and volley players achilles heel is usually their return of serve. Should be a good match
Serve and Volley is alive.....at least for now
Nadal in the semis, beats Raonic 6-4 7-6 (9-7) 6-4. Faces Dimitrov next, i think.
Impressive performance from him. Looked to be faltering in the second set, but just about held it together.

Wawrinka brings back to 2-sets each in the semi with Roger.
This Nadal vs Dimitrov match is great. High quality tennis.
Enjoying watching Rafa, looks like his old self out there. Moving about the court so well and defending immensely.
Into a fifth set now.
I don't think I've seen Dimitrov show this much fight before. His backhand has been ridiculously good in this match.
Quite a match this. 4-4 fifth set now.
Great stuff. Good effort from Dimitrov.
The first Nadal-Federer Grand Slam final since when?
Can't wait for Sunday.
Fantastic match, a great advertisement for men's tennis.
Again, I salute Rafa's resilience and stamina.
I also salute Dimitrov. For the first time, I can see why he's so highly regarded.
Now maybe i'll finally get some work done...
Rog v Rafa then.
Their 4th meeting in the Aussie Open, Nadal has won the other three
Fed v. Rafa, another classic match in the making (on hardcourts, that is)
Their 'weaker' side would determine the outcome.
For Fed, he needs to consistently pin Rafa to his backhand from the deuce side like Djokovic has been able to do, this will eventually cause Rafa issues and results in shorter balls and the lack of depth from that side
For Rafa, same play book over the years. High top spin to Fed's backhand and if Fed struggles and starts to slice the ball, I dont see how he will be able to beat Rafa. Federer needs to volley well and I think he will play the net a lot
Should be a good one!
Fed vs Nadal
Serena vs Venus
Rafa will smash federer and close in on him, and after he wins Rolland Garos again he'll be within 1 gs of confirming himself as the greatest tennis player of all time.
