Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal after last year's Australian Open final. I completely understand there are a lot of tournaments that we play, mandatory tournaments. And he has, I think, matured, I think, playing really, really good tennis, entertaining to watch.
"I improved it comparing to end of the previous year". Too many people are getting injured. Cilic will now turn his attention to the final as he prepares for an encounter with the World No. 2, Federer, or the always surprising, Chung, who has won over thousands of new fans at this years Open.
The long wait didn't bother him.
By making the last four, he became only the fourth British man to reach the Australian Open semi-finals in the post-1968 Open Era.
"He hits very hard", Cilic who leads 1-0 in the head-to-head record, said about his adversary.
"For me, it's another good opportunity".
There didn't appear any obvious injury to Edmund during the first set and when he returned to the court for the second, he appeared fine and started utilising his backhand to notable effect. It just delayed the inevitable.
"In this tournament [it] already happened a couple of times in my life, so it's really, I don't want to say frustration, but [it] is really tough to accept", Nadal said. Playing in his first ever Grand Slam semifinal, Edmund battled but could not maintain momentum against the No. 6-seeded Cilic. I'm hoping the news was not awful.
Rafa has reportedly suffered a leg injury during training which troubled him throughout the match whereas Cilic, knowingly, maintained a tough face.
