RAFAEL NADAL VS NOVAK DJOKOVIC PREVIEW

Ahead of the final, former world number four Tim Henman has hailed Rafa Nadals’ “phenomenal” record at Roland-Garros.

He said: “I’m sure Rafa learnt a lot from that match in Rome. Even though he has a fantastic record against Schwartzman he made a lot of adjustments today, stamped his authority on the first two sets.

“The third set did get a bit close, but when you have got that platform of a two sets to love lead it does make things a lot easier.

“His record at Roland-Garros is a joke, it is absolutely phenomenal. You look at his history, he’s got his 99th win, how he maintains the level of form, avoids injuries, and back in the 13th final without dropping a set is incredible.”
