The big story at the 2011 French Open is the budding rivalry of No. 1 Rafael Nadal and No. 2 Novak Djokovic. Nadal — the five-time French Open champion with just one career loss at Roland Garros — heads into this tournament having lost two straight major clay-court finals to the young Serb. Djokovic enters the event with a gaudy 37-0 record in 2011 and 39 straight wins total. Will Nadal's dominance in Paris continue, or will Djokovic keep his impressive streak alive?
