Federer survives fifth-set tiebreaker

Roger Federer quite nearly joined the group of players upset on day 5 of the Australian Open. The No. 3 seed ran off six points in a row to come back in a fifth-set tiebreaker and overtake Australian John Millman, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (10-8).

Millman held control in the early points of the last tiebreaker, 8-4, until Federer fought back and tied it at 8-8 with a lob Millman reached, but returned too far.
