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.
