A blistered left foot cut short his semi-final against Roger Federer but Hyeon Chung has won the Swiss maestro's admiration after a stellar Australian Open campaign.

Defending champion Roger Federer has stormed into his seventh Australian Open final with South Korea's Hyeon Chong leaving the match midway through the semifinal because of an injury.

En route the semi-final, Chung upset the likes of World No. 4 Alexander Zverev and 6-time champion Novak Djokovic before overcoming America's Tennys Sandgren in the quarter-final. The 21-year-old South Korean first burst into the spotlight last November when he defeated Russia's rising star Andrey Rublev to clinch the inaugural Next Generation ATP Finals.

"Over the last few days, I've had blister, over blister, over blister", Chung explained to Xinhua. He had it shaved off, now it's red raw. Having no idea about the pain his opponent was in, world number 2 was displeased.

Chung's management later said the problem had developed during the tournament, and they had tried to ease the pain with injections as it was "much worse than a regular blister".

"There's enough wear and tear on the body, there's enough tough matches throughout the season that when they happen, you take them".

"I'm just happy I'm in the final, to be honest".

But Chung, nicknamed "the professor" mainly because of his scholarly white spectacles but also because of a maturity beyond his years, had no answer to Federer's firepower. "We'll see a fresh and ready Marin this time around", added Federer. I'm happy I made the semis of a Grand Slam.

"I could tell something was up before the time out, he has great composure".

"I did right thing", Chung said.

"He is a frightening prospect because I don't think the style of tennis is going in the direction of Roger Federer", Wilander said. If I play bad on the court, it's not good for the fans as well. Because he has played so many matches in the row, I think that's why it was a buildup. 'No. I think he just really playing good in the baseline, in the net, wherever.

Federer drew within one win of a 20th Grand Slam title in a match that lasted one hour, 2 minutes.

Going into the match against Chung, Federer had a below-par semifinals record at Melbourne Park, only six wins out of 13.
