Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem confirmed the predictions and will confront today at 16:00 Greek time in the big final of Roland Garros.
They are undoubtedly the two best-performing tennis players at clay-court in recent years and we all expect a fascinating final.
On the one hand, Rafael Nadal of the 10 overall conquests in this tournament is ready to rewrite history and grow even more his own record reaching the 11th title in Roland Garros.
On the other hand, Dominic Thiem already has 8 titles on clay-courts and of course he is the only one who has won the Spaniard in the soil in recent years and even three times. Austria’s victories have all come to the 2-set games and this is a parameter to count as a 3-set win is clearly much more difficult to achieve especially against Rafa.
The two previous times that have been met in Paris, Nadal prevailed comfortably, but this year Thiem seems to believe it more than ever.
