Rafa Nadal at his very best!

The Spaniard is looking primed for a shot at the 2018 Australian Open title, which you can watch exclusively LIVE on Eurosport and Eurosport Player, thanks to shots like this.

It’s just classic Rafa, returning a quality wide serve and then busting a gut to reach the volley and hit an outrageous winner… followed by the trademark celebration.

He went on to reach the final but lost out to Tomas Berdych.

Nadal won the final Grand Slam of 2017 in New York and reached the final in Melbourne last time round, where he lost to Roger Federer in a five-set classic.

Based on current form, who would bet against another Federer v Nadal showdown this year?
