Greg Rusedski: 'Rafael Nadal will reach Australian Open final'

Greg Rusedski thinks Rafael Nadal will reach the Australian Open final for the fifth time in his career. The former world no. 4 and current BBC commentator made this prediction after the Spaniard's win over Argentine Leonardo Mayer.

'He doesn’t know where his tennis is but after today’s match he looks in great form,' Rusedski said. 'I predicted him getting back to the final this year and I’m feeling pretty confident about that because he’s gotten better with every match.

His section looks very good as well. Rafa is motivated. There are not a lot of people who are going to stop him out there.' Nadal will face the 28th seed Damir Dzumhur in the third round on Friday. ALSO READ: Maria Sharapova: 'I should be playing and beating players on hot streak' .
