Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are set to resume their incredible rivalry on court on Sunday when they face off for the 53rd time in the Australian Open final.

Both men have eased through the tournament so far, with Djokovic booking his place in the last two thanks to a straight sets victory over Frenchman Lucas Pouille.

The Serb, who edges Nadal 27-25 in the head-to-head record, has dropped just two sets in the entire competition, with the world number one chasing his 15th Grand Slam title.

Spaniard Nadal is looking to make it Grand Slam number 18 on Sunday, with the 32-year-old defeating Roger Federer’s conqueror Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-final 6-2 6-4 6-0.
