Vintage Federer: fantastic forehand passing

Roger Federer played his shortest match of his Australian Open campaign this year in the semifinals against Hyeon Chung, as the South Korean retired down 2-6 1-5 after an hour. When he was leading 5-1 in the first set, the Swiss hit a magical forehand passing shot. About his next opponent, Marin Cilic, Federer said: 'We saw it against Rafa, and we saw it again last night against Edmund. He brings power, basically everything. He had the same problem as Chung had in the Wimbledon final. We will see a fresh and ready Marin this time around.'
