Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have competed in many memorable matches over the years. This morning at the Austrailian Open, Nadal outlasted Federer 6-7 (5), 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4 to advance to the final.

He'll face the winner of the semi-final match between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

The 25 year-old Nadal won the 2009 Australian title but lost in the quarterfinals in his next two trips to Melbourne Park.

Federer hasn't added to his record 16 Grand Slam titles since he won the 2010 Australian Open.
