After watching the 2013 tournament from the stands Nadal has returned a man on a mission.
The 2009 winner lost his last final in Melbourne losing an epic battle to Novak Djokovic in 2012 but he has impressed on his way to the final, saving his best tennis for the quarter and semi-final victories over Grigor Dimitrov and Roger Federer.
Prior to that the world number one had conceded just 35 games in disposing of Gael Monfils, Bernard Tomic, Kei Nishikori and Thanasi Kokkinakis
Wawrinka meanwhile began his week rather easily with his first-round opponent Andrey Golubev retiring in the second set of their match and his third-round adversary Vasek Pospisil withdrawing before their match even began, the breaks sandwiched in between a 6-3, 6-3, 6-7, 6-4 win over Alejandro Falla
In the fourth round Wawrinka started to show his quality, beating Tommy Robredo before disposing of four time Australian open winner Novak Djokovic in the quarter-final.
The 28 year old then made sure that the landmark success over the Serbian was not in vein as he beat 7th seed Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-7(1), 7-6(3), 7-6(4) in the semi-final to secure his place in his first ever Grand Slam final.
The pair have met 12 times previously with Nadal winning all of their encounters. In fact the Spaniard has never lost a set to the Swiss star.
Their first meeting came at the 2007 Australian open when Nadal won 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and while their most recent meeting, in the round-robin round of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London last November was a much closer affair Wawrinka was unable to prevent a 7-6(5), 7-6(6) defeat.
Nadal experience and pedigree makes him the favourite for the title but if the much-publicised blister on the palm of his hands play up Wawrinka could make history.
