Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, the two dominant players in men's tennis, continue their epic rivalry in the final of the French Open.

Victory for Nadal would give him a ninth French Open title. Victory for Djokovic would give him a career Grand Slam.

Nadal has beaten Djokovic in all five previous meetings at Roland Garros, but last year in the semis the Spaniard only prevailed 9-7 in the fifth set. Last month Djokovic beat Nadal in the final of the Rome clay-court tournament.

Can the Serb finally slay Spain's King of Clay?
