Rafa Nadal feels the Australian Open could represent something special

Tennis: The 2009 Australian Open champion excited ahead of the opening Grand Slam event of the season.


Should things work out in a good way, Rafa Nadal thinks the upcoming Australian Open could be bringing him a lot of positives. The 30-year-old is set to feature the Australian Open for the 12th time in his career. He made it all the way at the event eight years ago in 2009. 

The Spaniard has yet to win a Grand Slam title since Roland Garros 2014. ''I feel that Melbourne is an opportunity to play well again and to have positive feelings and then anything can happen if I start to feel good and competitive,'' Nadal told reporters in Sydney ''I love playing in Melbourne. It's an unbelievable event. I'm very excited to come back.''

The 14-time Grand Slam champion achieved his career-worst result at Melbourne Park in 2016, losing in the first-round to compatriot Fernando Verdasco.  Nadal said last year ''was a tough year,'' and added he just hopes to ''change things this year and play better again.''
