13-time singles Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal is aiming to clinch the second Australian Open crown this month, where he was seeded at No. 1 followed by his rival and defending champion Novak Djokovic at No. 2 seed respectively.

Rafael Nadal, the World No. 1 tennis champion will have to work hard to clinch the Australian Open crown, where he had missed out last year’s event due to left knee injury. Spaniard has won his first Australian Open crown beating his best rival 17-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer in thrilling five sets with a 7–5, 3–6, 7–6(7–3), 3–6, 6–2 score line.

27-year-old Rafael Nadal had played another final played in 2012 against Novak Djokovic, where he lost the match in five sets with a 5–7, 6–4, 6–2, 6–7(5–7), 7–5 and it was considered as the longest match in Australian Open history and the longest Grand Slam singles final in the Open Era for five hours and 53 minutes.

King of clay is eager to return back to court next week in the Australian Open, where he had bagged season’s opening ATP Tour title at Qatar Open last week beating Gael Monfils in the final. Novak Djokovic is eyeing to bag the crown for fifth time in his tennis career, as he won three consecutive titles from 2011 to 2013 so far.
