Following in the lead of Marcos Baghdatis in 2006, Hyeon Chung has captured the attention of the tennis world as he makes an unlikely run at an Australian Open final. Ranked outside the world top 50, the South Korean has been the surprise packet of the tournament, taking out Novak Djokovic and No.4 seed Alexander Zherev on his way to the first grand slam semi of his fledgling career. However, an in-form Roger Federer is a step up in class and it remains highly unlikely the bespectacled cult hero will have the game to match the five-time Australian Open champion. For his part, Federer has been in imperious touch this campaign and has won all five of his matches in straight sets. In that respect, the Swiss starts the outright favourite with his 21-year old opponent out to $6.

 

Key Stat: In his straight-sets win over No.10 seed Tomas Berdych, Roger Federer hit 61 winners

 

Our tip: Federer in three with the first set to be under 9.5 games.
