French Open 2014 Men's Final: Nadal vs. Djokovic Preview and Prediction

Put away your upset alerts, the French Open final that we've all been waiting for has arrived. It's officially time for Rafael Nadal vs. Novak Djokovic XLII.

If there was any doubt about who ruled men's tennis after Stanislas Wawrinka won the Australian Open, that has been put to rest throughout this fortnight in Paris. Now, the top two players in the world will battle on Sunday for both the 2014 French Open trophy and the No. 1 ranking. 

By his lofty standards, Nadal struggled through the clay-court season, losing in back-to-back quarterfinals in April. But he's looked like himself on the clay at Roland Garros, and he will try to win his ninth French Open title, his 14th major overall. 

However, his opponent is no slouch. Djokovic is hungry to win his first title at Roland Garros and complete his Career Slam. 

Be sure to set your alarm clocks for Sunday morning. This is not a match that you're going to want to miss.
