Excited Novak Djokovic promises fans a final for the ages against Rafael Nadal
Novak Djokovic has promised fans a final for the ages when he meets Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final.
The pair have been utterly dominant in their run to the final in Melbourne, and both appear to be in the form of their lives going into the clash.
Djokovic is the slight favourite as he guns for his third successive Grand Slam title, but he knows he’s in for a huge battle.
“I’m sure we’re going to have a blast on the court,” said Djokovic.
“Rafa has looked as good as ever on the hard court throughout these few weeks.
“I haven’t played bad myself the last couple of matches. I think that this final comes at the right time for both of us.
“We can promise one thing – knowing both of us, we’re going to give absolutely everything out on the court. I think people will enjoy it.”
