Salut toute le monde! B/R Intern Jaideep Vaidya here bringing you a live blog of the 2011 French Open men's final between...you know it...Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer!

The two heavyweights are meeting for the first time at Roland Garros since Nadal annihilated Federer 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 three years ago and the Majorcan is the clear favourite in today's blockbuster.

But tournament underdog Roger Federer is fresh off putting an end to Novak Djokovic's 43-match unbeaten run and you can write him off at your own peril!

So grab those potato chips and sodas and join me for the next few hours of what promises to be an epic slug-fest on the Parisian clay!
