Roger Federer v Tomas Berdych

Federer is looking forward to booking a berth in the semi-final of Australian Open. He is set ready to face Tomas Berdych.

"I'm looking forward to playing against him. He seems in good shape and I'm happy he's over the back issues that he also had at the end of last year," said Federer, who is targeting a 20th Grand Slam title.

Unseeded Chung Hyeon has already reached the semi-final at a Grand Slam with a dominant straight-sets win over American Tennys Sandgren and will face either defending champion Roger Federer or Tomas Berdych in Friday's semi-final.
