Australian Open: Halep beats Kerber to meet Wozniacki in finals

Edmund was furious that a call of out had been made- wrongly- as he returned a Cilic serve

Chung, who had never before gone past the third round at a Grand Slam, is seeking a spot in his first career final at the tour-level, a feat last accomplished at a Slam by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the 2008 Australian Open.

Cilic was able to close the match out in straight sets, finishing with some strong serving to help propel him into the final of the Australian Open.

Croatia's Cilic will now face British number two Kyle Edmund in the semi-finals following his 3-6 6-3 6-7 (5-7) 6-2 2-0 victory.

All looked rosy for Nadal when he broke to lead 3-2 in the second set but there the matched changed. "Today was a different intensity than in the match with Rafa [Nadal in the quarter-final], in that match I lifted my game a lot and my energy was really good on court", Cilic said in his on-court interview.

There didn't appear any obvious injury to Edmund during the first set and when he returned to the court for the second, he appeared fine and started utilising his backhand to notable effect.
