This AO can be the defining moment in the Fed vs Nadal rivalry

If Federer wins this AO by beating Nadal it would tie their head to head at grand slam hardcourts . It would mean that the only grand slam Nadal was dominant on is Clay.

On the other hand if Nadal beats Federer at the AO then Rafas dominance at the grand slams is secured over Roger and Nadals argument for GOAT is greatly strengthened.

If Nadal wins the AO he will have come closest to anyone since Laver of winning the calendar slam . Although technically he would not have won the calendar slam in reality it's damn close . Nadal with this win would have the FO, Wimby, USO,AO all in a row.

This AO will be the defining moment alright. Though not defining in terms of Fedal. The exact opposite. Oh ya.
