TK's picks AO men's final: Federer-Nadal it doesn't get any better than this
Relish this time.
As tennis fans this weekend's Australian Open finals are as good as it gets. Enjoy the moments, savor them like a fine wine (if you're into that stuff).
It's very possible it could be the last time we see the Williams Sisters in a final together. It could be the last time we get a Fedal final.
The Williams Sisters are an amazing story. Despite their age they are still here going strong. Serena will break the record this weekend, and she'll do it against her sister, Venus. I don't she could ask for a better way to do it.
As for the men, Fed and Rafa are the two greatest players in the game. Anytime you get to see them play you should be salivating. But to see them in a slam final is just epic.
This has been one Australian Open for the ages and certainly one to remember forever. Four of the greatest champions of all time - it simply doesn't get any better than this. The four champions have a combined 60 slam titles between them - soon to be 62.
Here's my pick for the men's final.
Rafa d. Fed in 5: I will be rooting for Fed, but I just think Rafa is the best player in the world right now. There I said it. He has owned Fed in their rivalry, especially Fed's one-handed backhand. Either way I hope this is an epic match, and I hope all the fans soak it up because we may never see this again.
