Aussie Open: Injured Federer saves seven match points in stunning comeback

first_img Loading… Roger Federer produced one of the most stunning fightbacks of his career as he booked his spot in the semi-finals, saving seven match points to beat Tennys Sandgren in five sets.Advertisement Federer, the 20-time Grand Slam champion from Switzerland, was forced off court for treatment midway through the third set, moments after failing to break Sandgren from 0-40 down – a game in which he was handed an audible obscenity code violation.When given his warning he confronted a line judge and umpire Marijana Veljovic, visibly aggravated.The true reason for the 38-year-old’s frustration soon became clear when he trudged off court for a medical timeout. When he returned, his movement was clearly inhibited as Sandgren raced into a 2-1 lead.Sandgren – the 28-year-old tennis player called Tennys from Tennessee – got tight as he approached the finish line, hitting three unforced errors as Federer saved three match points on serve at 5-4 in the fourth set.Four more came and went for Sandgren in the breaker – in which he bizarrely took a knee to his calf from a sprinting ball kid at a change of ends – and world No. 3 Federer recovered from 6-3 down to level the match.He required more treatment, this time on court, at the end of the fourth set with his upper right thigh seemingly the problem area.

He required a great deal of help from his American opponent, whose nerves got the better of him whenever he came close to securing the win, but he showed remarkable grit and determination to hang in there before winning 6-3 2-6 2-6 7-6 (10-8) 6-3 in little over three-and-a-half hours – all while struggling with injury.last_img read more
