Australian Open 2019: It’s Nadal-Djokovic Final

By Akinwale Kasali

For the umpteenth time, Spaniard, Rafael Nadal and Serbian born tennis player, Novak Djokovic will be challenging each other for the grand slam title of the year.

Djokovic earlier today continued his quest for a record seventh Australian Open crown by swatting aside French 28th seed Lucas Pouille 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 to set up a final against Rafael Nadal.

The world number one committed just five unforced errors in a flawless display and moves into a first Melbourne final since 2016. He will face second seed Nadal in a 53rd career meeting and eighth in the final of a Slam.

In 2012 the pair contested the longest Grand Slam final in terms of time at the Australian Open when Djokovic edged past Nadal an epic battle 7-5 in the fifth set after 5hr 53min.

The Spaniard is optimistic of defeating the Serbian, saying that he is poised on winning the first grand slam of the year, with no one daring to stop him from actualising his dream.
