Nadal vs. Federer
At this year’s Australian Open, No. 2-ranked Nadal and No. 3-ranked Federer find themselves on the same side of the draw for the first time at a major since the 2005 French Open. If they were to meet, it will not be until the semi-finals.
Still, that did not stop Nadal from creating a bit of a buzz heading into the tournament by criticizing Federer for staying quiet on Tour issues because it might tarnish his reputation. Photo: Mark Blinch/Reuters
