Speaking after the match, the Switzerland star said:

“You’ve got to get lucky sometimes I tell you that.” “Sometimes you’re not under control.

“I just hoped he wouldn’t smash a winner, just keep the ball in play and if he does miss one of two then see what is going through his mind.

“As the match went on I felt better and the pressure went away.
“I didn’t deserve this one but I’m standing here and I’m obviously very happy.”

Federer will play in his 15th Australian Ope semi-final against Novak Djokovic or Milos Raonic.
