The Men’s French Open final will go resume later on today after play was suspended due to rain in the fourth set of the encounter between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
Current champion Nadal is leading 6-4 6-3 2-6 1-2 and will be looking to win his seventh trophy in eight years at Rolland Garros.
It has been fairly plain sailing for the Spaniard in the tournament so far as he has no dropped a set in any of the previous rounds. He also made light work of fellow countryman David Ferrer in the semi-final where he dropped just five games in the match.
The 26-year-old was defeated in the Australian Open final by Djokovic so will be out for revenge this time around.
It has been a great start to the final from Nadal and he is certainly in the driving seat, however he will know there is still a lot of work to do to lift the trophy as his opponent will keep fighting until the end.
As for Djokovic, he has still not managed a win at the French Open which makes it the only Grand Slam he has not been triumphant in. If he is to prove himself as the best player around at the moment, he will feel a victory here is needed.
The Serbian knows all about coming down from two sets down in this competition though as he was a winner against Jo-Wilfred Tsonga after the Frenchman dropped several match points.
The suspension of play came at the wrong time for the current number one in the world as he was starting to come into the match and had one eight games in a row which saw him win the third set and go a break up in the fourth.
With his current lead and domination of the game on this surface it is no surprise that Nadal is the favourite to lift the trophy. You can back him at 1.36 (4/11) with Paddy Power.
It will certainly be a tough ask for Djokovic to win for the first time at Roland Garros, he is being offered at 3.20 (11/5) with William Hill.

The Serbian is being offered at 3.25 (11/4) with BetFred to win in the fifth set.
