After two weeks of upsets and intrigue at the 2014 Australian Open, just two men are left standing.

On Sunday, surprise finalist Stanislas Wawrinka and 2009 Australian Open champion Rafael Nadal will battle it out in Rod Laver Arena for the chance to win the first major of 2014.

Wawrinka has had the tournament of his life, upsetting his nemesis Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals and taking care of business against Tomas Berdych in the semifinals. He's now in his first major final.

His opponent has been there many times before. Nadal, who was watching the Australian Open from home last year as he rehabbed his knee, is into his third Australian Open final after beating Roger Federer in the semifinals.
