Rafael Nadal - Second Aussie Open Final

Tough match today, very tough but he came through in 4.

Horrible start to go down 1-4 but he fought and he got it back to 4-4. No more breaks so we went to a tie break. Roger the much better player in the breaker and he took it 7-5.

Second set saw a mixed start with breaks traded in the first two games. A fantastic FH cross court shot from Rafa during game six was rewarded with a was a massive leap into the air and a VAMOSSSS. A lovely tight BH down the line sealed the break for Rafa to lead 4-2. There was a break in play due to the Australia Day fireworks but Rafa managed to keep his concentration and broke once again to take the set 6-2.

Again we went to a tie break in the third but this time is was Rafa's to win it even though he managed to make it more difficult after facing into a lead.

I stopped making notes during the fourth set but all you really need to know is that Rafa won it :-) and took the match in 4.

Novak or Murray awaits in the final on Sunday. Who do you want Rafa to play?
