While it’s Serena vs. Venus over in the women’s Australian Open final, it’ll be Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal in the men’s ultimate match.

Are we sure it’s actually 2017?

It’s the first time since Wimbledon 2008 that these four legends are all in the Grand Slam final together, and it’s the first time since the 2011 French Open that Federer and Nadal will battle it out for a major title.

Arguably the greatest rivalry in tennis history, the “Fedal” pairing has met a whopping 34 previous times, with Rafa holding the 23-11 advantage. They’ve also gone head-to-head in eight Grand Slam finals, with the Spaniard again owning a significant edge, 6-2.

Many thought this would never happen again, but the veterans have again looked healthy and dominant over the last two weeks.

You aren’t going to want to miss this one, so here’s everything you need to know to watch the history-making final:
