The Sunday final of the French Open is set and for the second time in three years it features the top two players in the world, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
Today in the semifinals Novak Djokovic beat Ernests Gulbis in four sets to reach his second career French Open final. Then Nadal took the court and obliterated Andy Murray in just 100 minutes to reach his ninth career Slam final.
“I played my best match of the clay court season today,” Nadal said. “I’m very happy to be in the final.”
Nadal leads Djokovic 22-19 and 5-0 at the French Open including wins the last two years. And he’s only lost once in 90 career best-of-5 clay matches and has won 34 straight matches in Paris. But Djokovic has won the last four meetings and needs the French Open to complete a career Slam.
“I know that it will be a physically demanding match [against Nadal]… I’m ready for it,” said Djokovic.
So in the best rivalry in the sport, who’ll take home the 2014 French Open trophy and the No. 1 ranking?
