Nadal vs Djokovic

I expect Rafael Nadal to win this match. This will be his 9th trophy in Roland Garros. There are three main reasons for my pick. Here are they:1. Rafael Nadal had dominated at Roland Garros in the last 10 years. He has eight trophies here, including four in the row. Only once he lost at Roland Garros, in the fourth round in 2009 to Robin Soderling from Sweden. Nobody else beat him in Paris. Nadal love to play here and the spectators love him. There is some chemistry between them. I expect another title for “King of Clay”.2. Nadal is in better form than Djokovic. The Spaniard easily pass through the tournament. Nadal has a maximal record and he lost only one set in France, against his compatrior Ferrer in the quarter-finals. He beat with maximal 3:0 Murray in the semi-finals, as well as Lajovic, Mayer, Thiem and Ginepri before. Nadal played his best match against Andy Murray in the semifinal and the actaul champions from Wimbledon was simply destroyed. Djokovic, meanwhile, had a problem against Ernests Gulbis in the semi-finals. Novak lost the third set and looked confused in the fourth, but his experienced was decisive. He managed to win the fourth set, but Gulbis made lot of unforced errors. After all, Gulbis is not a top-class player. Rafa Nadal surely is and he will punish every mistake from Djokovic.3. The mutual record is on Nadal’s side. “King of Clay” leads 13:4 on clay and we should not underestimate this fact. Nadal is also better at Roland Garros and has 5:0 against Djokovic at the French Open. It is true that the Serbian won the last match on clay in Rome, but Toni Nadal, Rafael’s uncle and coach is not worries: “It’s true that Novak beat Rafael in Rome, but it’s true that Rafael has won many matches here in this court.”His nephew has an incredible record of 65 wins and only one defeat at the French Open, including 34 wins a row. I expect another win for Nadal.
