All eyes on Djokovic, Nadal at 2011 French Open

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal both have reason to like their

chances at the French Open.

Djokovic is unbeaten so far in 2011, a 37-0 record that includes

seven titles from seven tournaments and victories over Nadal in

finals the past two weeks on clay – the surface used at Roland

Garros.

Nadal, for his part, can derive confidence from his success at

past French Opens: He is 38-1 with five titles over his career at

the year’s second Grand Slam tournament.

When play begins in Paris on Sunday, the focus squarely will be

on those two men – No. 1-ranked Nadal of Spain and No. 2-ranked

Djokovic of Serbia – and whether they will meet in the June 5

final.
