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.
