January 30, 2020 -- Melbourne, AUS
The defending champion proved to be too tough for Roger in his 46th major semifinal match.
The 20-time Grand Slam winner kept the pressure on and pushed the first set to a breaker, however it just wasn't enough to beat the solid Serbian, Novak Djokovic, as he defended his title. While it was obvious Roger wasn't feeling 100% he still fought yet Djokovic won the match 7-6 (1), 6-4, 6-3 and will play Dominic Thiem in the Finals.
Despite the loss, the Swiss star becomes the 4th oldest to get to the semifinals in a Grand Slam in the Open Era.
