Federer vs Nadal Live Tennis Final


Welcome to the Australian Open men’s final in Melbourne for one of the most historic tennis matches of all time between Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal.

It has been a fairy tale tournament for these two great competitors and, after two weeks of storybook moments and unforgettable highs, it’s come down to one final contest under the lights of the Rod Laver Arena.

Start by admitting the truth. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal play Sunday in the Australian Open final, but when we say “Sunday,” we mean this thing starts at 3:30 a.m. here in East Coast America. It’s on ESPN, which normally is re-airing an NBA game or some infomercial at that time.

Nadal hasn’t won a Grand Slam since 2014 when he was victorious in the French Open. He has won the Australian Open just once before, in 2009. That year, he happened to play … Federer in the final. Federer has won the Australian Open four times, the last being in 2010. His last Grand Slam win overall came in 2012.

As a rivalry, things are slanted in favor of Nadal. He leads the head-to-head at 23-11 and at 14-7 in finals matches. In Grand Slam matches, he’s 9-2 against Federer, including 3-0 at the Australian Open. He is also 6-2 against Federer in Grand Slam finals.

Federer vs Nadal, Live Australian Open Finals


As we get into the final stage of the year’s first Grand Slam and the world is all set to witness another encounter between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at the Rod Laver Arena on Sunday evening. Having spent most of the previous season struggling with injuries while Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray dominated in their absence, Federer and Nadal, seeded ninth and 17th respectively, were rightly unfancied at Melbourne. Nadal’s five-set triumph over Grigor Dimitrov sealed the first Grand Slam final between two of the tennis greatest players since the 2011 French Open final. The duo have 31 Grand Slam titles between them with Federer winning 17. In their first encounter, Nadal aged 17 and outplayed the Swiss at the Miami Masters in 2004. Sunday’s clash will be their ninth Australian Open Final and it will be their first since 2011. Federer will be the oldest man to play a Grand Slam final in more than 40 years.

The match is set to start at 8.30am GMT. Live coverage is available on British Eurosport and Eurosport HD. Radio commentary will be available on BBC radio 5 Live and on the official Australian open website.

Federer has never beaten Nadal at the Australian Open in their three previous meetings with their 2009 final which the Spaniard won in five sets considered to be one of the if not the greatest match witnessed on Rod Laver Arena thus far. However, the speedy nature of the courts this year could favour the Swiss ace, despite his poor record in their overall clashes on hard courts.

Federer has never beaten Nadal at the Australian Open in their three previous meetings with their 2009 final which the Spaniard won in five sets considered to be one of the if not the greatest match witnessed on Rod Laver Arena thus far. However, the speedy nature of the courts this year could favour the Swiss ace, despite his poor record in their overall clashes on hard courts.

Their last meeting in a Grand Slam final was at the French Open in 2011 when the Spaniard won in four sets. Despite them not having come up against each other at the highest stage they were never out of contention. Nadal was ranked number one in the world as recent as 2014 and Federer has made three Grand Slam finals and four semi-finals in the last three years.

Both the players admitted that they never expected to find themselves facing each other on the final day of the 2017 Australian Open. Federer described it as ‘unreal’ when it was out to him that he could face Nadal in the final, and the latter was simply thankful that they had another chance to compete at this level and perhaps script another epic that lasts long in the memory of all involved in the sport.

“What I’ve come to realise is when you don’t feel well, when you have too many problems going on, you just won’t beat top-ten players.

Federer’s victory in 2010 gave him a fourth Australian Open title, but he will look to avoid a sixth semi-final defeat in seven years when he confronts Wawrinka in the first semi-final. Federer came into the 2017 Australian Open having not played competitive tennis since losing the Wimbledon semi-final to Milos Raonic, but he has shown very little signs of the knee problem that forced him to miss the second half of last season in his brilliant march to the last four in Melbourne.

Federer has surprised himself with his run to the semi-finals at the Australian Open where he will play compatriot Wawrinka. The Swiss ace is coming back after a six-month injury absence and is playing his first ranking tournament since last year’s Wimbledon and admitted that he was not expecting to reach the last four stage of the first Grand Slam of the year.

The former world number one started the campaign with wins over two qualifiers in the first two rounds, but has since seen off world number 10 Tomas Berdych and number five Kei Nishikori in the third and fourth rounds. Federer beat Andy Murray’s conqueror Mischa Zverev in straight sets in the quarter-finals and has now been tipped as one of the favourites to lift his fifth Australian Open crown.

Wawrinka was tested in his very first game at the Australian Open when he was taken to the fifth set by Martin Klizan. It was the wakeup call the Swiss needed after which he has lost just one set thus far. The three-time Grand Slam winner always brings his best tennis during Grand Slams, but will be aware of his poor record against his compatriot.

The 31-year-old has won one of their last three meetings but that was on clay at Roland Garros and will be hoping that he can use that experience to overcome Federer again on Thursday.

The American, 35, won 6-2 6-3 and will next play unseeded Croat Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, who beat fifth-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova 6-4 3-6 6-4.

Konta, seeded ninth, went into the quarter-final on a nine-match and 18-set winning streak but came up short in her first meeting with Williams.

Williams is now two wins from claiming an Open-era record 23rd major title.

“I was in the locker room watching her clean up her matches. She is a future champion here for sure, so I am pleased to get through this.

“I got a little frustrated with my serve, but I told myself ‘don’t get Babyrena’ [Williams’ angry alter-ego] and focused on enjoying myself out here. Today I felt I can do this, it is such a great opportunity for me.”

fter Lucic-Baroni had reached the semi-final at Wimbledon in 1999, the stage looked set for her to enjoy a career at the top of the sport but personal issues away from the court forced her to take a long absence from tennis and she drifted from the spotlight.

Rafael Nadal vs Milos Raonic

Nadal eased past Florian Mayer and Marcos Baghdatis in straight sets in the first two rounds, before getting through a titanic four-hour five-set battle against German rising star Alex Zverev. The Spaniard then took out French sixth seed Gael Monfils in the fourth round in four sets.

Raonic got past tricky opponents Dustin Brown and Gilles Muller in the opening two rounds without dropping a set, before beating both 25th seed Gilles Simon and 13th seed Roberto Bautista Agut in four sets.

The Spaniard reached his first grand slam quarter final in more than 18 months with a hard-fought 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 win over the sixth-seeded Frenchman and plays third seed Milos Raonic next.

Nadal’s resurgence, coupled with Federer’s smooth progress, means there is the tantalising prospect of the first major final between the two great rivals since 2011.

Reflecting on the win, which took just under three hours, Nadal said: “For me, it means a lot because I really start the season playing quarter-finals in a grand slam again, especially on a hard court (and) after a couple of years without being in this round is great news.

“When you lost the third (set), you are down in the fourth, you are not under control, no. That’s the real thing.”

Nadal had looked to be cruising to a straight-sets victory at a packed Rod Laver Arena, but he tightened up in the third set to allow his mercurial opponent back into the match.

“I feel a little bit tired. But probably tomorrow [Tuesday] a bit better and hopefully after tomorrow perfect,” Nadal said in his on-court interview following the win.

She has a 2-1 winning record over Serena’s sister Venus – a seven-time Grand Slam winner and former world number one – including a first-round victory at last year’s Australian Open.

Konta, 25, will face second seed Williams in the quarter-finals at around 02:00 GMT on Wednesday.

“I’ve played quite a few Grand Slam champions and former world number ones,” said world number nine Konta.

What is most remarkable about even discussing Johanna Konta playing Serena Williams in the quarter-final of a grand slam Williams vs Konta Live is that it seems entirely normal. As Martina Navratilova said on Monday, “She looks like she belongs.”Konta, ranked 47th in the world a year ago and at No9 now, thinks so too – although she will not express the sentiment in such blunt terms. Nor does she know how she will react when she looks across the net in the Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday afternoon Williams vs Konta Live Stream and sees a player who is one major away from overtaking Steffi Graf’s record of 22 majors. If she sticks to her “process”, she will just play her shots – which have grown in.

The Swiss legend beat Austrian veteran Jurgen Melzer in four sets in round one, before recording a straight-sets victory against the young American Noah Rubin in the second round. Federer then stepped it up a level to destroy 10th seed Tomas Berdych in the fourth round, and edged past fifth seed Kei Nishikori in five sets to reach the quarter-final.

The 30-year-old leftie beat Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in round one, 19th seed John Isner in five sets in round two, and Malek Jaziri in the last 32. And then against all expectations, the swashbuckling serve-volleyer took out world No 1 Murray in four sets to set up a date with the four-time Australian Open champion Federer.

“I felt great in the fifth, I must say. Great energy. Even deep into the fourth I thought, ‘Yeah, fifth, here we go, no problem for me. I’m feeling good about my chances’.

“I was playing positive tennis, I was playing offensive. My body was reacting.

“I was playing way better than the first couple of rounds where I put in a lot of mental energy to stay with my opponents, figure them out, how were they going to play, how were the conditions going to be – understanding the comeback really.

“I think now that I’m in the tournament I was able to focus point per point on my opponent, on the tactics. That didn’t drain me much. I felt great in the fifth, which I’m very happy about.”

In a match that lived up to it’s billing, Nadal edged out Alexander Zverev in a thrilling five setter 4-6 6-3 6-7 6-3 6-2 in just over four hours. Experience and just as importantly, fitness contributed a lot to Nadal finally taking the victory. Zverev began cramping in the fifth and struggled from them on despite his best efforts. The win ended a run of three straight losses in matches that went to the fifth set, including twice last year to Lucas Pouille and Fernando Verdasco.

For a man seen as a mental giant, these matches were a surprise to see Nadal lose against either inexperienced players or those considered to be weaker mentally so this will be a huge boost to Nadal’s confidence to have ended his small run of five set losses. “I think I finished the match playing much better than what I started the match, no? That’s a very important thing.” he said.

Meanwhile, Monfils has been quietly making his way throughout the draw without much fuss for a top 10 player. Wins over Vesely, Dolgopolov and Kohlschreiber were all very comfortable for the Frenchman who is looking to match his best run in Melbourne – a quarter final run last year. This tournament has been his first of the year and he hasn’t looked rusty at all, especially considering he lost five of his last six matches in 2016.

While it’s fair to say that Monfils has stepped it up another level the past year, his record against Nadal still makes for dire reading. He is 2-12 against the Spaniard with the two wins coming in 2009 and 2012. They met once last year on clay with Nadal winning the final set 6-0 in the Monte Carlo final after two close sets previously. They also met here in 2014 with Nadal dropping just six games, something that seems very unlikely this time round.

Serena Williams VS Barbora Strycova Live Tennis

Serena Williams and Barbora Strycova meet for the third time on Monday, and once again it’s on one of the grandest stages in tennis. Williams, seeking her Open era-record 23rd major title, has beaten the Czech player both previous times. Both were in 2012 and in straight sets at majors — in the second round at the Australian Open, and in the first round at Wimbledon.

They come into Monday’s opening match on Rod Laver Arena without having dropped a set in their three previous matches. But that’s where the similarity ends: Strycova’s fourth-round appearance last year at Melbourne Park was her best result here; Williams is a six-time champion. Still, Strycova wouldn’t have it any other way.

“That’s why you train, why you work hard, to play these matches on these stages and against the best one,” she said. “She’s a powerful player, and I’m so small. “I don’t give anything for free, and I fight all the time. She’s human, and she is beatable.”

And more about that height difference: Strycova is 1.64 meters (5 foot-4), Williams is 1.75 (5 foot-9).
Williams said she’s familiar with Strycova’s game

“I have seen her play a lot … she’s super fit, she has a good game, she’s very aggressive, Williams said.

Williams has an added incentive to clinch her 23th major following defending champion and top-ranked Angelique Kerber’s loss in the fourth round to CoCo Vandeweghe on Sunday night. That means Williams can overtake Kerber for the No. 1 ranking if she wins the Australian Open title. Kerber took the top ranking from Williams after winning the U.S. Open last year.

Here is a brief look at some of the other matches Monday which complete the fourth round:

No. 9 Rafael Nadal vs. No. 6 Gael Monfils: The Spanish lefthander has beaten the often- acrobatic Monfils 12 out of the 14 times they’ve played, and the last four matches in a row. Nadal, the 14-time Grand Slam champion and only remaining major winner in this half, is coming off a tough five-set, four-hour win over 19-year-old Alexander Zverev. U.S. Open semifinalist Monfils beat Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets. They open night play on Rod Laver Arena.

No. 3 Milos Raonic vs. No. 13 Roberto Bautista Agut: Raonic has had a cold and fever since his first-round match, but his career record against Bautista Agut might make him feel better — he’s 4-0. “(He) tries to take over a little bit more with the forehand. Also, you know, doesn’t suck you in as much into his game,” Raonic said. ” So I’ve been able to find the solutions for him a few times in the past … it’s going to be a match that I’m going to have to step up and dictate and take it on my terms.”[Source]
