The unseeded Korean sensation made waves on the court after he unexpectedly knocked out Novak Djokovic in the fourth round.

Hyeon overcame the US’ Tennys Sandgren this morning to land his match against Federer in one of the most unpredictable men’s tournaments in quite some time.

Chung now joins Kyle Edmund in making it through to the last four as an unseeded player and is also the lowest-ranked man to make the semi-finals of the Australian Open since Marat Safin in 2004.

Meanwhile, world number one, Simona Halep and Angelique Kerber will meet in the last four of the women’s singles, following convincing wins over Karolina Pliskova and Madison Keys.
