The worst case scenario for both Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic has happened, with the 9-time champion Nadal landing in Novak’s quarter at the French Open.
The two met in the 2014 finals, but this year could now square off in the quarterfinals a week from Wednesday. Djokovic, who is celebrating his 28th birthday today, is seeking his first French Open title, which would complete his career Slam.
Andy Murray, who’s been undefeated on the clay, also ended up in the top half of the draw, paired with David Ferrer in his quarterfinal.
Roger Federer is at the bottom with Stan Wawrinka in his quarter. Tomas Berdych could be Federer’s semifinal opponent. He has Kei Nishikori to contend with.
