Rafael Nadal is hoping to meet old rival Roger Federer in the Australian Open final by beating in-form Grigor Dimitrov in their semi-final on Friday.
Spaniard Nadal, 30, has not reached a major final since winning his 14th Grand Slam at the 2014 French Open. Rafael Nadal and Grigor Dimitrov will do battle for a spot in the Australian Open 2017 final on Friday night.
The 30-year-old Spaniard has been out of the Grand Slam limelight since his last title success at Roland Garros in 2014, as injuries sidetracked his glorious career.
But victory over Bulgaria's 15th seed Dimitrov, once dubbed 'Baby Fed', in Friday's second men's semi-final will put Nadal one win away from a 15th major title.
Nadal is now dialled in for his next challenge presented by the increasingly impressive Dimitrov. The winner will play Federer or Stan Wawrinka in Sunday's final.
Federer, 35, is going for a record 18th major title after an epic semi-final win over fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka.
