Here are some articels of Rafa talking about his AO chances
If you are too lazy to read here is a catch up on the articels
It hasn’t been done in 41 years, but Rafael Nadal has a chance to match Rod Laver’s feat of holding all four Grand Slam titles at one time when he goes for the Australian Open crown in January.
“It’s a little scary to think that if I win in Australia it would complete the circle of four consecutive Grand Slam (titles), although what’s scary is that I’ve already won three in a row,” the 24-year-old from the Balearic island of Mallorca told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.
“Right now my sense is that I’m training and playing quite well, but until I get to Australia anything can happen. I’m not going to lie. For me it’s a big dream to get there and try to play well and compete to reach the final rounds (because) once you’re there anything can happen.”
“It’s true it’s an opportunity, maybe my only one, to win four in a row“
“I’m gonna try to repeat the same like last year, that I practised all well in December and I arrived to the beginning of the season with very high level, but without calm [since I didn’t] win in a long time,” said Nadal. “My opinion now, if I arrive with the same level like last year in the beginning of the season, the situation can change, because the calm [is] going to be there after this probably more emotional and good season of my career.”
But should Nadal come away from Melbourne with his 10th major title, there’s no doubt that the next question will be whether he can complete a calendar year Grand Slam.
