Melbourne, Jan 27(ANI): Former World No.1 Rafael Nadal has reckoned that he is confident for the Australian Open final after having defeated 'the greatest (player) in history', Roger Federer in the semi-final clash.
Nadal edged past Federer 6-7 (5), 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4 to storm into his 15th Grand Slam final.
"I did much better than what I thought, what I dreamed for three weeks ago.I'm very happy for everything. It's a fantastic victory for me against the greatest (player) in history. That give me a lot of confidence ... a lot of calm," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Nadal, as saying.
He said entering the finals was a dream come true for him as he was in agony before his first -round match.
"Twenty four hours before I played my first match, I was in my hotel room crying because I believe I didn't have the chance to play in Melbourne. Two weeks later, I am here in the final. So it's a dream for me," he said.
He attributed his success to the strategy devised by him and his coach Tony. (ANI)
