2020 may have been an unpredictable year, but when it comes to the French Open, at least some things have remained consistent. On Sunday afternoon in Paris two familiar foes take to the court at Roland Garros for the final that will be their 56th clash. Whoever comes out victorious between Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic, it’s history in the making.

To beat Djokovic, 'Nadal will have to play his best tennis'

The final provides further records for the Spaniard to claim or extend. First up, a win would see him equal Roger Federer’s 20 Grand Slam titles. This has only been bettered in the world of tennis by Margaret Court (24), Serena Williams (23) and Steffi Graf (22). It would also take his French Open championships to an unparalleled 13, a love-affair that would take Nadal’s wins to an incredible 100 from 102 matches.

But despite the dreams that lie ahead for the boy from Mallorca, it’s going to be an uphill struggle. As his uncle and former coach, Toni Nadal, put it to Eurosport:

“It is a final that is going to be complicated [for Nadal] because there are a lot of factors in favour of Novak Djokovic,” he said pointing to the heavier ball that will not react as much to the Rafa spin and consistent form this year.

But could Nadal do it? There was a simple answer: “I trust my nephew,” but a word of advice followed:

“[Rafa] knows he has to raise his level. And when he had to raise it, he always succeeded. This Sunday he will have to play his best tennis.”
