Nadal, who is gunning for a 17th major title but only his second Australian Open crown, was hampered by a knee injury at the tail-end of the 2017 season. But I feel good," said the 31-year-old, who played his first Australian Open in 2004. Talking with the Australian Open, yeah, they gave us the chance to play like an open practice but closer to the match for the crowd. It was a good practice, good feelings for both of us I think. In Melbourne, Nadal is at his first major tournament in years without his uncle Toni, who coached him from childhood until after his US Open win last year.
