The French Open men's final will feature tennis' two top players as Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal meet for the fourth consecutive time in a Grand Slam final. Nadal will be hoping to win this one on his best surface after dropping the past three meetings.
Both men will be chasing history Sunday. Djokovic could become the first man in over 40 years to hold all four Grand Slam titles, while Nadal will attempt to win a record seventh French Open title. Which titan of tennis will take home the title?
Will either player dominate?
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal's last Grand Slam meeting was in the final at this year's Australian Open. The match lasted 5 hours 53 minutes and was the longest men's Grand Slam final.
Rafael Nadal is 50-1 at the French Open, but he's lost three major finals in a row to Novak Djokovic. Losing to Djokovic on Nadal's best surface would be a serious setback for the Spaniard.
Novak Djokovic is attempting to become the third man to complete a non-calendar year Grand Slam. Only two men -- Don Budge and Rod Laver -- have held all four titles at the same time.
Novak Djokovic is the only man to win three or more Grand Slam matches against Nadal. Only five men have won more than one major matches against Nadal.
The rest of the story
Rafael Nadal has only won titles on clay so far this year, but would be tied for most titles with Roger Federer at four if Nadal wins at Roland Garros.
