The quarter-finals of the 2020 Australian Open between Roger Federer and Tennys Sandgren is the kind of match that gets written down in history. After the second and third sets (6-2, 6-2), anybody could bet that Federer would lose. However, according to The Guardian, the game changed its course when the fourth set ended in a tie-breaker.
“I got incredibly lucky today. As the match went on I started feeling better and the pressure went away and I just tried to play. Again, got a little luck to get the break. I think I served really well for most of the match, especially in the end. I don’t deserve this one but I’m standing here and I’m obviously very happy.”

“I don’t deserve this one”. Humble as usual. We need more champions like that.

For his next trick, Roger Federer will be chained, placed inside of a chest and dropped into the Yarra River and will attempt to escape from that … #AustralianOpen

This just goes on to prove that the game isn’t over till it’s over. Roger Federer has a lot more tennis left in him!
