Nadal vs Djokovic live stream FREE: How to watch French Open final online and on TV

When it comes to clay tennis, there has never been anybody better than 12-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard has defeated Novak Djokovic in six of their seven Roland Garros meeting, including the 2012 and 2014 finals. Djokovic, however, won their last clash at the French Open in 2015 when he knocked Nadal out in the quarter-finals.

Also on the line will be the battle to be considered as the ‘Greatest of All Time’ in male tennis.

Djokovic was expected to arrive in Paris with 18 Grand Slams to his name by winning last month’s US Open in New York, which Nadal skipped due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the Serbian was disqualified in his fourth-round match at Flushing Meadows when he inadvertently hit a line judge with the ball.

Nadal is one behind Roger Federer’s haul of 20 majors and a 13th French Open title today would therefore bring him level with the Swiss, leaving Djokovic three adrift.

What has been said ahead of the French Open final?

Nadal: “I can’t predict the future.

“The only thing I know is, to play against Novak, I need to play my best. Without playing my best tennis, the situation is very difficult.

“I know that this is a court that I have been playing well on for such a long time, so that helps.

“But he has an amazing record here, too, being in the final rounds almost every single time.”

Djokovic: “Finals of a grand slam is always huge.

“This is what you work for all year long, every season hoping that you can put yourself in a position to fight for grand slam trophies.

“It does have a certain I would say significance and difference when I play French Open finals to any other slam final.

“This is the one that I won the least, so of course I am extremely motivated to try to get my hands on another trophy.”
