French Open 2012 Results: Novak Djokovic And Rafael Nadal To Meet For Men's Championship

While there was not much drama on Friday at Roland Garros, Sunday should be prime viewing for tennis fans. No. 1 Novak Djokovic defeated No. 3 Roger Federer in straight sets, 6-4, 7-5, 6-3. That win coupled with No. 2 Rafael Nadal's victory over No. 6 David Ferrer, 6-2, 6-2, 6-1, sets up a matchup in the French Open finals ripe with stories.

For Djokovic, its an opportunity to complete the grand slam he started last July at Wimbledon. It would also be his fourth consecutive finals victory over Nadal, against whom he is 3-1 overall against.

For Nadal, its the opportunity to set a record for French Open titles in the Open Era. He is currently tied with Bjorn Borg with six French Open titles. In his entire career, Nadal has never lost a French Open championship match.

The men's final will be broadcast live on NBC starting at 9 a.m. Eastern time.

Serena Williams was upset in the first round of the French Open at Roland Garros on Tuesday afternoon. She lost in three sets to Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano, 6-4, 6-7 (5-7), 3-6. This is the first time in her professional career that she has lost in the first round of a Grand Slam tournament.

Here earliest exits in the French Open were a pair third round losses in 1999 and 2008. However, in her entire career, the French Open is the one Grand Slam she has not won more than once. Her lone French Open title was in 2002 and she has not reached the semi-finals since 2003.

Williams hopes that she will be able to rebound later this summer and go after her fifth Wimbledon title. Her 2010 title at Wimbledon is her last Grand Slam championship.
