Fans can watch Rafael Nadal vs. Roger Federer live online as the rivals face off in the semifinals at the Australian Open.
The match will be the 33rd for the two tennis greats, and though Nadal has more often than not gotten the better of Federer (owning a 22-10 advantage), this time the advantage may be with the Swiss. In a quarterfinal match against Grigor Dimitrov, Nadal had a callous on his hand burst open into a bleeding wound, one that remains a painful blister for his match with Federer.
Fans who watch Rafael Nadal vs. Roger Federer live online will see the Spaniard play through the pain as he takes on Federer.
The match is set to start at 3:30 am EST (7:30 pm in Australia) and is being broadcast on ESPN. Live streaming video of the Rafael Nadal vs. Roger Federer match is also available on WatchESPN.
Roger Federer isn’t planning to sit back on his newfound advantage. Roger said he has been talking with some others to formulate a strategy against Nadal.
“He’s been tough to play against, no doubt,” Federer told reporters after his quarterfinal win. “I’m happy I get a chance to play him in a Slam again. I don’t remember the last time we played.
“The head-to head record is in his favor. I’m looking forward to speaking to Stefan [Edberg], because when we spoke together, you know, when he came to Dubai and we spoke about the game, we clearly spoke about playing Rafa as well. He thought he had some good ideas, so I’m looking forward to what he has to say. Clearly with [coach Severin Luthi], he knows him inside out. I’m looking forward to hear what the boys have to say. We’ll prepare. I hope I can get a win. We’ll see.”
