Australian Open: Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer Inspire Fans To Dream On. Rohan Raj · Sports Expert Updated: Jan 25, 2017, 20:37 IST. The notorious rivalry between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal has dominated the tennis world for the past decade. Federer inspired his fans to dream again by dismantling Mischa Zverev - the man who stunned world no 1 Andy Murray earlier - 6-1, 7-5, 6-2 with a clinical display of all-court tennis to reach his 13th Australian Open semifinal. Chasing his 18th Grand Slam title, and first since 2012, the Swiss ace neutered his left-handed German opponent's serve-volley game to set up a last-four meeting with fellow countryman Stan Wawrinka.
