Although a Nadal - Djokovic final would have made headlines, this is the climax that tennis purists would have hoped for before the tournament began. Thiem has been the second best player on clay for some time now and is the player most likely to dethrone Rafa at the tournament he has dominated for so long. Is it too soon for the Austrian though? Although he has proven he can beat anyone on the surface, the Philippe Chatrier court is hallowed ground for Nadal, and it is impossible to ignore the fact that he has won all ten finals he has contested at the French Open.
Curiously, all nine of the pair's previous matches have been on clay, so they know each other's game well and that should make for a competitive, compelling final. The edge has to go to Rafa though as, has been quoted in the press this past week, beating Nadal on clay over a five-set match is the toughest challenge in sport, let alone tennis.
Nadal to win in four sets.
