Roger Federer’s fourth-round Australian Open clash with little-known Hungarian Marton Fucsovics was supposed to be a pushover for the Swiss maestro.

And despite sealing the match in straight sets and entering the quarter-finals on Monday, there was a lot at display from the defending champion.

First up, in the opening set, Federer pulled off a spectacular no-look around-the-back shot during a rally at the net, albeit going on to lose the point.

During the second set, he also showed off his lofty skills, winning a sky-ish rally in amazing fashion.

Later in the game, the 36-year-old proved he’s got strong legs and quick movement by hurdling over a signboard to avoid a crash.

Meanwhile, Federer is next slated to trade punches with Czech Republic’s Tomas Berdych for a place in the semi-finals Down Under.
