Rafael Nadal Advances to 2019 Australian Open Final
By SENATUS Magazine | 24 January 2019

Spanish tennis legend Rafael Nadal continued to roll back the years with yet another crushing victory over a younger opponent. This time, in the semi-final at the 2019 Australian Open, was over Stefanos Tsitsipas with a scoreline of 6-2, 6-4, 6-0. Three of Nadal’s last four Australian Open opponents have been young. He beat 19-year-old Alex de Minaur in the round of 32. He beat 21-year-old Frances Tiafoe in the quarterfinal. And Tsitsipas, Nadal’s most recent vanquished foe, is just 20.

Tsitsipas was thought to be a threatening match-up, having defeated Roger Federer in the previous round. But Nadal looked masterful throughout. In the final set, Tsitsipas didn’t win a single game.

The other semifinal match is between Novak Djokovic and Lucas Pouille, who will face each other on Friday.
