Australian Open 2018 schedule and Day 10 order of play: When is Roger Federer on?

YOU can only deal with what’s in front of you, but some would suggest Roger Federer include Lady Luck on his ‘thank you’ list should he win a 20th grand slam title this week.

Let’s make it clear — nobody would be more deserving of such a feat than the legendary Swiss. His level at 36 is almost beyond belief and certainly good enough to win this Australian Open with a full-strength draw.

But when it comes to external factors and the draw, things could hardly have worked out any better for Federer this year.

Even before he’s booked a spot on the semi-finals, Federer’s greatest ever rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are gone. Fellow Swiss star and three-time major winner Stan Wawrinka also battled injury in an early exit. Andy Murray didn’t even make it to Melbourne and current world No.3 Grigor Dimitrov didn’t survive the fourth round.It leaves Federer an odds-on favourite to defend his title and his run in Melbourne draws comparisons with his last slam triumph — at Wimbledon last year.

In that tournament, Federer did not run into a fellow member of the ‘big four’ at any stage.

The same has happened in the first major of 2018 but, on paper, his run has been even easier in Melbourne.

The combined ranking of his seven opponents at Wimbledon 2017 was 232. The combined figure cannot be lower than 301 if he goes on to win the Australian Open.Of course the job is far from done yet. Federer’s biggest remaining title threat is Nadal’s conqueror Marin Cilic. The Croatian sixth seed knows what it takes to win a grand slam, triumphing at the 2014 US Open, but his win over the Swiss at the tournament is his sole victory in nine meetings between the pair.

Federer also holds a dominant record over quarter-final opponent Tomas Berdych and has never played surprise packets Hyeon Chung, Tenny Sandgren and Kyle Edmund.

A sixth Australian Open title and astonishing 20th major now appears at Federer’s mercy and he’s been gifted arguably the easiest path to grand slam glory of his career.

Then again, at 36 Federer should theoretically be more susceptible to injury than anybody and he’s now reaping the rewards of years of hard work, looking after himself and the smart call to dramatically reduced his schedule when injuries hit in 2016.ROGER FEDERER’S HEAD-TO-HEAD vs POSSIBLE AUS OPEN OPPONENTS

Tomas Berdych (quarter-finals): 19-6

Hyeon Chung (semi-finals): Never played

Tennys Sandgren (semi-finals): Never played

Marin Cilic (final): 8-1


Britain’s surprise semi-finalist Kyle Edmund is certainly making a name for himself in Australia this summer. And even if this tennis career didn’t work out he might still have been doing so — as part of the Ashes.

Edmund was always tipped by his schoolteachers to have a bright sporting career — just as a cricketer rather than a tennis player.

The 23-year-old became just the sixth British man to reach the last four at a grand slam event in the open era when he defeated Dimitrov 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-4 in Melbourne, sparking celebrations in one particular corner of North Yorkshire.

Edmund’s exploits are being followed closely at Pocklington Prep School, where his sporting prowess was spotted at an early age by head of sport Russ Parker and colleague David Tyrrell.

Parker told Press Association Sport:

“He did athletics, he did cross country, he did football, he did rugby and his favourite sport when he was at school was cricket.

“He was a cricketer and an outstanding cricketer. My colleague and I said: ‘He’s a professional cricketer’. He was the best we’d seen.He just had that hand-eye co-ordination which obviously he has taken forward into his tennis career.

“But if he’d concentrated on cricket, he would undoubtedly have been a cricketer, in our opinion.”

Despite tennis becoming his main focus, Edmund continued to participate in a variety of sports and demonstrate the tenacity which has served him well in later life.

Parker said: “We have an athletics competition that’s run by independent junior schools at Gateshead. He entered the long jump each year and he won that every year.

“He wasn’t the most elegant of long-jumpers, he just wanted it more. It was just, ‘I’m not going to be beaten’. He’d win by two or three centimetres, but you knew it was coming. He’d hit the board and he’d fly.”

That fighting spirit was on show in Eduman’s stellar win over Dimitrov. He’ll face Cilic on Thursday night for a place in a first career grand slam final.

How long do Australian Open matches go for?

Given the nature of the sport, it’s uncertain how long each of the games will run for. Hard-fought matches can run significantly overtime – such as the 2012 Men’s Singles clash between Djokovic and Nadal which lasted an astonishing 5 hours 53 minutes. The draws will be released on the Australian Open official website on Friday, 13 January.
How can you watch the Australian Open online for free?

Channel 7 will be livestreaming the Australian Open on its 7Tennis website. You will be able to select which matches to tune into. In fact, if you want to get your tennis fix in early, the website is currently streaming the 2018 APIA Sydney International.

You can log onto the 7Tennis website on your desktop and mobile device through any browser to start streaming for free. The minimum requirements are as follows:

You must be located in Australia and be over the age of 15, or otherwise have a parent’s permission to use the service.
You must be using a supported device and for optimal streaming we recommend a minimum internet data speed of at least 3Mbps or above.

Naturally, streaming costs lots of data so it’s best to eschew cellular networks for Wi-Fi whenever possible.

It’s also important to note that there will be ads that run during the livestreams. You could sign up for a 7Tennis premium account to see less commercial content, but you can’t avoid it completely.
Watching the Australian Open through the Freeview FV mobile app

If, for whatever reason, the 7Tennis website isn’t working for you, an alternative way to watch is through the Freeview FV mobile app, which streams free-to-air TV content to mobile devices for free. We’ve put together an extensive guide on how to use the app here.

The American won 6-4 7-5 to claim only her second win at Grand Slam level.

Ninth seed Konta had reached the quarter-finals and semi-finals on her past two visits to Melbourne Park.

She saved four match points on a hot and blustery afternoon but framed a smash on the fifth to give 23-year-old Pera the biggest win of her careerPera goes on to face Barbora Strycova in the third round after the Czech 20th seed beat Spain’s Lara Arruabarrena 6-3 6-4.

Konta, 26, has now won just three of 11 matches since reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals in July.

Pera lost in qualifying and only made it into the main draw of a Slam for the first time as a lucky loser, after another player withdrew through injury.

The Croatia-born American has taken full advantage, deservedly knocking out ninth seed Konta with relentless attacking off her returns and forehand.

“I was ready to leave on Monday,” said Pera. “When I got in I was so excited and to win two rounds is amazing.”

Konta could not cope with the pace and depth coming at her, while her own serve failed to make much impact, and she finished without hitting a single ace.

Despite landing 70% of her first serves, she would end the match having won just 54% of those points, while 14 winners illustrated her struggle to hit through Pera.

An overhead that was completely missed, followed soon after by a mishit smash on match point, summed up the way her game had unravelled.It was clear from the outset that Pera was going to provide a far sterner test than her ranking suggested, with a break point going begging in the first game.

A “come on!” from Konta just for holding serve at 3-3 told of the pressure that Pera was applying, and two brilliant returns gave the American the only break of the first set.

The conditions were playing their part, with Konta missing successive backhands from mid-court as the wind swirled, but two double-faults in a row suggested the occasion might finally be getting to Pera as she slipped 2-0 behind in the second set.

That theory was debunked within minutes as Pera tore into another Konta service game, breaking straight back after the Briton telegraphed a poor drop shot.

Konta was under huge pressure now, battling well to save five break points before Pera made the seemingly decisive breakthrough at 4-3.
