Spanish superstar Rafael Nadal has made another French Open final. This time around, Rafa will face Novak Djokovic as the two face off for the French Open title. 

Novak Djokovic has been in tremendous form in 2020 and he enters this match having not lost a full match this season. In the previous round, Novak Djokovic defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in 5 sets. It was a challenging match for Djokovic as he was forced to battle hard but the Serbian superstar showed his class which allowed him to win the match. During the win, Novak Djokovic impressed with his receiving as he won 44% of his receiving points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 8 occasions. This will be the biggest challenge of the season for Novak Djokovic as he is playing the greatest clay court player of all-time at Roland Garros. 

On the other side of the coin, Rafa enters this match having defeated Diego Schwartzman in straight sets in the previous round. It was a simple win for Nadal as he controlled the entire match by winning 80% of his service games and 6 return games. Nadal has been playing at an elite level all tournament as he is yet to lose a set. Djokovic should be a challenge but on clay, Nadal will fancy his chances. Rafael Nadal has won the French Open 12 times and he will be hoping to win his 13th this time around. 

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have played each other 55 times in the past with Djokovic leading the rivalry with 29 wins while Nadal has won 26 times. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the ATP Cup where Novak Djokovic won in straight sets.

This should be a close match since Djokovic looks unbeatable while Nadal is the master on clay. It takes a brave man to bet against Djokovic but I am going to as I don’t see him being good enough to beat Nadal on clay. Rafael Nadal has been in outstanding touch and I see the Spaniard being too good on clay for any player on the ATP tour. I see Nadal winning this match in 5 sets.
