Roger Federer had come into second Sunday of the Australian Open last year with 17 Grand Slam titles. When he was done in a marathon win over historic rival Rafa Nadal in pulsating five sets, his tally had improved to 18. Later in the year he added a 19th (Wimbledon) and now he has a chance to take that tally to 20. In his path stands Marin Cilic who finished runner up to the Swiss legend at the All England Club and comes into the last round of the tournament with a straight sets win over Kyle Edmund. Federer also had an easy time when his semifinal opponent Hyeon Chung retired in the second set with blisters.
