Posted on Friday, January 27, 2017 by "T".
It took 5 sets and 5 hours of play to determine a winner in the semi-final between Rafael Nadal (Spain) and Grigor Dimitrov (Bulgaria). Dimitrov had 2 chances to break for a 5-4 lead in the final set, but Nadal refused to give up, held his serve and managed to win the set with 6-4. Roger Federer (Switzerland), who defeated fellow countryman Stanislas Wawrinka in the semi-finals, is now awaiting [...]   Read more » Tennis: Nadal vs Federer in Australian Open Final!

This really is a blast from the past and i thought the days of a Federer v Nadal final had long gone. Nadal will be favourite for me after he played so well in the semi final and it will be fascinating to see who wins

well this brings back the memories- it's like being thrown back into the 80's, these two dudes are one of the biggest names in tennis world, yet their glory/hole days have long gone and now they're more like commercial dudes who are hanging in there to be relevant, no real push for major titles or top 1 spot. for federer it's all good since the age does it's thing, but for nadal i have no idea what went wrong with him, i always thought we're in a long battle between nadal/djokovic for nr. 1...

Yes federer is really good a real legend, so good to see him in the final of major tournament again, I hope his health will be good and he will be able to produce his best form, nadal is also a legend, but federer is better player overall, no one knows what happens in thus match, so all the past doesn't matter getr.

Hey guys!

I also will be be betting on Rafael Nadal to win even if Federer has been playing great throughout this tournament. There are many reasons for that.

1. When Nadal comes back from a long time off he's usually on fire and has an infinite gas tank.
2. Nadal is 23-11 against Federer, probably the only guy with such a good record against the best of all time.
3. The odds are about 50/50.
4. Federer hurt his knee in his last match

Actually I am a fan of Novak, and among these two tennis players Rafa greater sympathy. But since it is perhaps the last chance for Roger, and given the fact that as far as he sovim professionalism and love for the sport inspires us, rooting for him

I can only say big big congratulations to tne living legend, the one of the best tennis players of all times roger federer, who managed even at a very solid age to win a major tournament!!! This was a hard match for noth players but roger was tougher and I am glad he won, nacal still has many chances he is 5 years younger

My warmest congratulations go out to Roger Federer who just won his 18th grand slam title.
It was a thrilling five-set battle against Rafael Nadal.

Whats up mobsters!!

That match was awesome, I love watching Federer play when he's on his A game. Like Wawrinka said, he makes the best players look mediocre when he's on a good day...

About my prediction I forgot to take into consideration that Roger had 1 more day to rest and that Nadal's match against Dimitrov was a very long war. I think that played a role in this match! But when Roger hits his spots there's just not much one can do.

It is a great news to see that those two fantastic champions can play their best tennis at 35 and 31 years old. Six month ago, they couldn’t play and currently, after many hours of intensive training and a little bite dose of genius, they are able to defeat the best players in the world to achieve the goal of any athlete. In addition of their sport level, the thing which impresses me the most is their fighting spirit. To watch them play is a lesson of life and combativity. They keep in mind that as long as the point is not finished, it is necessary to fight until the end. It is the difference between champions and others.

well i rush to inform you great and informative mobster/mobbit IndianAce1 from the lands where cows walk free and sh1t in the streets aka India, that this tournament you are talking about is what we could easily call "old news", therefore even though it's great news, it falls into category of news that shouldn't be raised from depths of the posts ocean.

Lol I agree with you there Bowie1984!

He can up the post if he feels like it. That Nadal vs. Federer match was awesome and we might never see one of these again in a grand slam final ever again. Also I agree with him about the players preperation, I think it was one of the first time they both really took a lot of time off to come back 100%. Federer's ranking was down to something like 17 before the tournament so he needed those points. Every point he makes at the end of the next season are gonna be good for him because he doesn't have to defend any ^^

well i am not such an influential person so i could just talk to generals out of the blue, so out of massive respect to such individual and out of the undeniable fact that this highly respected individual comes from the country where cows are free to poop on the streets i just agree with every single word that he has written and give my thumbs up just in case.
