The 2012 Australian Open saw the four greats progressing through to the semi-finals and produced a mens final between Djokovic v Nadal of unrivalled calibre on Sunday 29th January. As the first Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open have a reputation for fascinating stories that unfold before our eyes. 

Djokovic undisputedly ruled Melbourne in 2011, only dropping one set on the way to his second slam. Combining venomous ball striking with mind-blowing athleticism, he showed the capability to dominate the tennis world for years to come. After winning a tough match against local legend Lleyton Hewitt at the 2012 Australian Open, the world number one overcame British runner-up Andy Murray to face his toughest challenge yet in the final against Nadal.

The battle between Djokovic and Nadal, just short of 6 hours, goes down in history as the longest Grand Slam final ever played. It was an epic clash of two legends that have rightfully dominated the mens circuit for many years. After losing the first and fourth set to Spain's tennis star Nadal, Djokovic won 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7, 7-5 to secure the best win of his career.

Andy Murray finished runner-up at the Australian Open in 2010 and 2011, but fell at the semi-finals hurdle. He took Djokovic to 5 sets but had to concede defeat. Some say Federer, now 30, has been in a gradual decline over the past few seasons but his performance at the Australian Open 2012 proved that you can never write him off.

Roger sailed past his opponents at Melbourne Park and is on course to pick up another major crown in the autumn of his career. He defeated Australia's rising star Bernard Tomic in straight sets in the fourth round and cruised by Argentine Delpotro so it was up to Rafa Nadal to put an end to his stride in the semi-finals.

In the women's tournament, Serena Williams suffered a surprise defeat against Russia's Ekaterina Makarova, leaving Kim Clijsters, Victoria Azarenka, Petra Kvitova and Maria Sharapova to fight for their spot in the final of this prestigious event. 2012 champion Azarenka ended Kim Clijsters hopes to win the title when they met in the semi-finals and defeated Maria Sharapova in 2 straight sets to take the 2012 crown?
