Ruthless Roger Federer handed wounded Chung Hyeon an old-fashioned schooling before the overwhelmed South Korean quit with foot blisters trailing 6-1 5-2 in a damp squib of an Australian Open semifinal Friday.It was an anti-climactic end for Chung, who played superbly to beat fourth seed Alexander Zverev in five sets in round three and even better in a straight sets win over six-time champion Novak Djokovic in the round of 16 .Chung, nicknamed "the professor" mainly because of his scholarly white spectacles but also because of a maturity beyond his years, had no answer to Federer's firepower.With his movement and defensive skills – his biggest weapons – compromised he was a sitting duck as Federer racked up 24 winners in the 57 points he required for victory.
