Cilic will now play the victor of Friday's match between Roger Federer and Hyeon Chung in the Australian Open final.

Cilic hit 32 winners compared to 25 from Edmund, whose only two break points came in the opening game of the match which he failed to convert.

Roger Federerand Rafael Nadal might be arch-rivals on court but off it they are good friends and the compassionate Swiss star has been anxious about the injured world number one. I am a positive person and I can be positive, but today is an opportunity lost to be in the semifinals of a Grand Slam.

As for the women's final, it's a battle of the top two seeds as Simona Halep and Caroline Wozniacki are now playing after they both came through tough semi-finals.

"I believe in my own game, I believe in what I'm doing".

"Against Marin will be a tough one, but at the same time, is a attractive match to play against a great player".

Rafael Nadal (Esp) gets treatment for his leg injury.


"I can not influence him much across the net, but I'm going to try to take care of things on my part of the court".

"I'm 23 years old, my first Grand Slam semi-final", he said. Nadal is trying to become only the third player in history to win all four Grand Slams twice or more.

Kerber, seeded 21, comes into her clash with Halep bubbling with confidence and in great touch on the back of an unbeaten singles campaign in the Hopman Cup and her triumph in the Sydney warm-up. Movement would be the area they both struggle with, so they'll both want to be on the offensive.

"I think it will be a long match with a lot of long rallies". I was playing a match that anything could happen: could win, could lose.

"You can't predict how far someone can go but what you do know is he's on an upward curve".

Federer defeated No.19 seed Tomas Berdych to advance to the semi-finals, where he'll play Hyeon Chung.

Nadal had a delayed start to the season because of an injured right knee, but appeared to be in good form through the first four rounds. Plays great on the hard courts.
