Melbourne – Roger Federer saved seven points way to an enthralling 6-3 2-6 2-6 7-6(8) 6-3 comeback victory over American world 100 Tennys Sandgren to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open .

Federer won the first set but Sandgren rallied to bag the next against the error-prone Swiss, received a code warning for obscene language and took a lengthy medical timeout during the third set.

movement seemed restricted but the 20-times Grand Slam winner and six- champion at Melbourne Park carried and saved seven points the fourth set before winning the tiebreaker to force a decider.

Federer, got involved a lengthy argument with Serbian chair umpire Marijana Veljovic during the ill-tempered third set, converted first point, and meet either Milos Raonic or Novak Djokovic for a place Sunday’s final.
