On the other side, Roger Federer will be looking to win his first Grand Slam title since the 2010 Australian Open. A victory would also secure his second French open title.

The last three French Open men's finals have been won in straight sets fittingly enough with Nadal winning in 2008 and 2010, and Federer winning in 2009. Nadal is looking to win his sixth French Open title in seven years. If he wins it would mark the fourth time he's beaten Federer in the French Open finals.
