Today’s Australian Open schedule includes the Mixed Doubles semi (featuring Australia’s Sam Groth and Samantha Stosur), the Women’s Doubles final and the legendary Rafael Nadal’s semi-final against Grigor Dimitrov. Here are the times for today’s matches.
We have nothing against Dimitrov and wish him the best of luck in tonight’s match – but a Rafa win would result in an Australian Open 2017 final against Federer. I’m sure we’re not alone in wanting to see these two titans of the sport clash for the umpteenth time.
Many consider the decade-long Nadal/Federer rivalry to be the greatest in the history of tennis. If they do play against each other, it will almost certainly be for the last time in the final round of a major. Whatever the outcome of tonight’s Men’s Singles match, let’s just agree that this has been one of most interesting Australian Open tournaments in ages.
