Tennis: Federer advances to Australian semifinals

-A A +A
By Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Two points into the final game of his Australian Open quarterfinal against Roger Federer on Tuesday, Stanislas Wawrinka steadied himself to try returning a forehand smash.
Wawrinka playfully waved his racket over his head in a mock attempt to return it. Forget it, the ball sailed past him and Federer won the point.
It was that kind of match for Wawrinka.
Federer faced just one break point, won all 13 of his service games, got 77 percent of his first serves in and polished off his Beijing Olympics doubles gold medalist teammate 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 in 1 hour, 47 minutes.
“When it’s clicking it’s really a good feeling, and I don’t ask too many questions,” Federer said of his outstanding serve.
All facets of Federer’s game were working Tuesday as he advanced to the semifinals, where he’ll meet 2008 champion Novak Djokovic.
No. 3-ranked Djokovic overpowered Tomas Berdych 6-1, 7-6 (5), 6-1 in a night match at Rod Laver Arena.
