French Open 2012: Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal Square Off With Men's Title On The Line

A day after Maria Sharapova was crowned champion of the women's draw at the 2012 French Open, familiar foes Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will battle on the Roland Garros clay to determine a men's champion. With a victory, Novak would match Sharapova yesterday in earning a career grand slam.

The Djokovic versus Nadal matchup is a repeat of the 2011 French Open men's final, won by Nadal. The Nadal victory last season prevented Djokovic from winning all four grand slam events in a calendar year. A Nadal victory in Sunday's final would be his seventh French title, tying him with Bjorn Borg for most all-time.

Coverage of the final day of the French Open begins at 9:00 a.m. EST on NBC and will run until 2:00 p.m. PT.
