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.
