On Sunday evening, tennis ace Rafael Nadal will take on World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the final match of the French Open. The final day of Roland-Garros for 2020 will see the two battle for the men’s singles trophy in a match that will become historic, no matter the outcome.

While Djokovic, the defending champion stands to become the first man in the Open Era to win every Grand Slam twice, a victory for Nadal would see him draw level with Roger Federer’s record 20 major titles. The two have had fifty-five prior encounters, of which 29 were in Djokovic's favour, while 26 were in Nadal's. This is the most tour-level match-ups in the Open Era. However, it must also be noted that Nadal has won six of their seven clashes at Roland-Garros.

Whatever the outcome, it promises to be a fascinating game. And if you're still wondering when and how to watch, well, we have you covered. Read on.
