French Open Results: Novak Djokovic Cruises In Straight Sets To Set Up Slam Opportunity Against Rafael Nadal

In the second French Open men's semifinal match, No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia won in straight sets against No. 3 Roger Federer of Switzerland, 6-4, 7-5, 6-3. The victory, coupled with No. 2 Rafael Nadal's win in the first semifinal, sets up the two best men's players in the world for the fourth straight grand slam.

Since Wimbledon last year, Djokovic and Nadal have matched up in every grand slam final. All three of those matches were won by Djokovic so it sets up the opportunity for Djokovic to win the grand slam. However, its against the player who has never lost a French Open final in Nadal, who is going for an Open-era record seventh French Open championship.

The men's final will be broadcast live starting at 9 a.m. on NBC Sunday.

French Open Results: Maria Sharapova To Meet Sara Errani In Women's Finals

Not long after No. 21 Sarah Errani of Italy punched her first ever ticket to the French Open finals after defeating No. 6 Samantha Stosur of Australia, No. 2 Maria Sharapova earned her first ever trip to the French Open finals, defeating No. 4 Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, 6-3, 6-3.

Prior to this tournament, Errani had not advanced past the second round of the French Open singles tournament. Her best performance in a grand slam tournament prior to this tournament was the quarterfinals of this past year's Australian Open. By comparison, Sharapova's best performance in the French Open was a pair of semi final appearances in 2007 and 2011. Her last grand slam title was the 2008 Australian Open.

The finals are scheduled for a live broadcast at 9 a.m. on NBC Saturday morning.
