The Spaniard’s 12 Roland Garros wins is the most in any of the four majors, and he will be looking to add to that record when he comes up against the Serb.
But Djokovic stands at number one in the world rankings after another astonishing year on the court.
He’s won 36 of his 37 matches in 2020, with his only loss coming in the US Open fourth round meeting with Pablo Carreno Busta.
But even then it was extraordinary circumstances, with the Serbian disqualified for hitting a line judge with the ball.
He’s lost just three sets so far in this year’s French Open, with two of those coming in his semi-final win over Stefanos Tsitsipas.
In a thrilling encounter, Djokovic just about held his nerve to progress with a 6-3, 6-2, 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 victory.
And he’s certainly had a tough route to Sunday’s final. The world number one has beaten 15th seed Karen Khachanov, 17th seed Carreno Busta and fifth seed Tsitsipas on his way to Nadal.
The Spaniard, on the other hand, has had a more straightforward route. And that perhaps explains why he hasn’t dropped a single set so far.
He did, however, face a late test in his semi-final encounter with Diego Schwartzman. The Argentine is the only player to have beaten Nadal on clay this season, but he couldn’t repeat those heroics this time around.
The Spaniard clinched a 6-3, 6-3, 7-6 (7-0) win, and is now unbeaten in all 13 of his previous Roland Garros semi-final appearances.
He’s only lost twice in Paris in 15 years, and is aiming to equal Roger Federer’s record of 20 majors.
A win would see him do that, while a victory for Djokovic would see him move to 18.
But after choosing not to go to the US Open because of concerns about coronavirus, Nadal has only played nine times since March.
No two men have played each other more than Djokovic and Nadal, with the pair facing each other for the 56th time on Sunday.
The Serbian can be backed at 7/5 to win the game, with the Spaniard currently 4/6.
Three sets has been given odds of 17/10, with four sets and five sets available at 9/5 and 11/5 respectively.
