Federer, the former No. 1-ranked player in the world who has a record 16 Grand Slam titles under his belt including four previous crowns at the Australian Open, is listed as a solid -160 favorite on the tennis odds to defeat Nadal and advance to yet another Grand Slam final.
Nadal, who has also been previously ranked No. 1 in the world and has ten Grand Slam crowns on his resume including one at the Australian Open in 2009, is listed as the underdog at +130 odds. Nadal defeated Federer in five sets to win his lone title at Melbourne Park, and also beat Federer in four sets in 2005 - the last time they met in a semi-final at the Australian Open.
Federer, the No. 3 seed, comes into this semi-final matchup on the heels of an impressive straight-set victory over Juan Martin del Potro on Tuesday. Later that night, the second-seeded Nadal needed four gruelling sets to defeat Tomas Berdych and advance to face Federer on Wednesday night.
In the other semi-final, defending champion and top seed Novak Djokovic of Serbia will tangle with Andy Murray of Scotland in a repeat matchup of last year’s Australian Open final which was won in straight sets by Djokovic.
