French Open: Nadal, Djokovic chase history

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will meet on more time at a Grand Slam final and one of them will make history. Either Nadal wins his 7th Roland Garros title and breaks the record he currently shares with Bjorn Borg or Djokovic will become the first man to win four major tournaments in a row since Rod Laver in 1969.

This is their fourth straight Grand Slam final, all of which have been won by the Serbian. At a press conference on Saturday, Nadal predicted the match to be "tough and complicated". His strategy is to play as "aggressive as possible" and "dominate the points". "If I give Djokovic the initiative it will be impossible for me", explained Nadal. For Djokovic, playing Nadal once again is "the ultimate challenge". 

Play starts at 3PM (Paris time) at Court Philippe Chatrier. Weather forecast predicts rain on Sunday and Monday and it's likely the match could be suspended or postponed.
