Nadal & Djokovic Set For Grand Finale
The world’s number one and two tennis players Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will face off in the final of the French Open on Sunday after straight-set victories in their respective semifinals on Friday.
The Spanish second seed, gunning for his seventh French Open title, said: “The way that I think is that I’m in the final, I’m playing well, hopefully I can play one more match at this level - that’s all.
“In my opinion I did almost everything right, because my serve worked very well, changing directions. My backhand was at its best so far today. I hit the forehand well during the entire tournament. Today wasn’t an exception.”
Meanwhile, Djokovic is eyeing off his own history, when he tries to become the holder of all four Grand Slams.
“There’s a lot on the line,” he said.
“I’m playing the best tennis of my life in last year and a half and I should use that as a confidence boost and try to get my hands on title. Why not? I have won against a great player today. First time I find myself on Sunday in Paris. Let’s see what I can do.
“It’s a final, so, again, I think it’s unpredictable what’s going to happen because we are the top two players and we have played so many times last year and a half in so many finals.”
