For the first time in tennis history, a major tennis tournament will have 3 stadiums that each have a retractable roof!

History will be also be set at this tournament if either Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, or Roger Federer win the title.

Rafael Nadal will have his second career Grand Slam if he wins, a record for such an event entirely in the Open Era.
Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer will have an Open Era record 5th title if either one of them wins.

Or perhaps someone else will spoil the history party... :) Maybe the defending champion Stan Wawrinka? Maybe one of the young guns?

Not to mention the prize money: $3,100,000 to the winner alone.

A lot is at stake, who will take it?



Draw discussion welcome. Good luck and health to all the players! :)

Respectfully,
masterclass

Re: 2015 Australian Open (Jan 19-Feb 1) History at stake!

A lot riding on this.
Here's hoping it is AO #5 to Novak, this would establish him as the most dominant player at this event in the Open Era, and set the tone for RG and the rest of the year as well.
Would be that much sweeter if it is 1 vs 2 in the Final as well, a victory there would just be sensational.

DjokoKing will create more history.
Unlikely given his results in majors over the past couple of years.

Since 2012 i have always anticipated Novak losing in the quarters and Nadal to go all the way. And i have to say, it make everything a lot easier. :lol:

Has Nadal ever had a tough draw?

Every slam, we always expect an easy draw for Nadal. Even his fans admit he gets the easiest draws of the big four. The stats show this, the average ranking of his opponents is so low. Now I'm not saying it's rigged, but he certainly has extraordinary luck when it comes to these things.

I was trying to think of a tough draw Nadal has had in his career and I couldn't remember any. The only vaguely tough ones he had have fallen apart completely. Can anyone tell me any draws he has had that are tough? Give me some examples please :)

So...

Djokovic-Raonic
Wawrinka-Nishikori
Berdych-Nadal
Federer-Murray

At least on past matchups I think Wawrinka-Nishikori could only one that is going to be a close match if Murray isn't able to fully recover, Raonic to somehow up his level against Djokovic, and Berdych...you know. :lol:

Also Kyrgios-Coric possible I think at the R16 if Coric could somehow gets over Fed and both could keep up a good level for 3 rounds too.
