As a matter of fact, Raonic also qualified in the quarterfinals at Brisbane, and a meeting between him and Federer would be possible only in the final. It would be really interesting to witness this duel in Australia. Raonic is an excellent player on hard surfaces like the one in Brisbane.

The confrontation between Roger and Kamke was quite unbalanced. Federer played very relaxed throughout the match.

His opponent started well both sets, each time he managed to win the first game of the set. But the tennis machinery called Federer started shipping unplayable balls. On his own service, Federer didn`t give the opponent any chance. In many occasions, despite his struggle, the German player failed to win any ball when Federer served. Thus, Roger won with a score that leaves no doubt 6-2 6-1. In the next game, Federer will face Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, a player who's quite dangerous.
