Australian Open 2014: Rafael Nadal up for double record Down Under

The Australian Open has not always brought Rafael Nadal good fortune, but the year’s opening Grand Slam tournament is set to provide him with his latest stepping stone on the route to sporting greatness. If Nadal beats Stanislas Wawrinka in today’s final – and the bookmakers have him as a red-hot favourite to do so – he will move into joint second place on the all-time list of male Grand Slam champions and become the first man in the Open era to win all four of the sport’s major titles twice.

Stanislas Wawrinka says he is confident in his ability to beat Rafael Nadal even though he has never won a set against the Spaniard
