Federer Beats Nadal
Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal both weren’t expected to play in the Australian Open due to long breaks because of injury. However, they both made it all the way to the Championship round where they met once again in a huge matchup. There is a chance this is the last major matchup between the two, and with the win Federer has the lead over Nadal for the GOAT conversation.
However, Nadal isn’t even close to being done so he could easily pass Federer. In the end, the match was one of the most improbable scenarios heading into the tournament, and the fact that they both advanced that far is a testament to the great legacies they will both have.
