World Number 1 Roger Federer, has won the 1st set against the talented Frenchman Jo Wilfred Tsonga, 6-2.
Federer reached the final last year but lost in 5 epic sets to the world number 2 Rafael Nadal, however the Swiss maestro looks on course to defeat Tsonga.
Federer broke the Frenchman in the 3rd game of the match, and has been hitting the ball with superb accuracy and power which is so far proving too much for Tsonga to handle.
2 years ago Tsonga reached the final of the Australian Open beating Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal along the way before losing to Novak Djokovic in 4 sets in the final.
The winner of this match will play Andy Murray, after the British Number 1 battled back from a set down to beat the young Croat Marin Cilic in their Semi Final in 4 sets.
Federer has won the Australian Open 3 times, in 2004, 2006 and 2007.
