Novak Djokovic will get another chance to finally add the French Open title to his impressive collection of trophies on Sunday, as he'll go up against Andy Murray in the final of Roland Garros 2016.
The Serb will be appearing in his fourth Paris final, and after multiple wins at every other Grand Slam and a record 29 Masters titles, the French Open is a glaring hole on his resume.
It will be Murray's first Paris final, and while the Scot is more known for his proficiency on the faster surfaces, his impressive four-set win over defending champion Stan Wawrinka showed he's more than able to hold his own on clay.
Here's everything you need to know about the men's final.
Date: Sunday, June 5
Time: 1:30 p.m. (BST); 8:30 a.m. (ET)
TV: Eurosport 1; NBC
Djokovic will have the chance to make history on Sunday in more ways than one. Not only could he finally grab his first Roland Garros title, but he could also do something no men's player—not even the great Roger Federer—has done in almost 50 years, per ATP Media Info:
The Associated Press' John Leicester argued Djokovic would add his name to the debate regarding the greatest players of all time with a win over Murray:
With victory on Sunday in the French Open final against Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic would become part of that debate, too. Not simply because it would give him the complete collection of titles at all four majors without which no player can pretend to have been among the very best, but because he will achieve a rare feat that eluded both Federer and Nadal: winning four consecutively.
The Djoker has gotten used to the pressure over the years, but you have to imagine Sunday's contest will be a unique experience, even for him.
Last year, he also came within a single win of his first French Open trophy, but his mentality entering this year's draw has been much better. Djokovic has spent the last few weeks interacting with ballboys, having fun during rain delays and smiling at every turn, and he seems as relaxed as ever.
Per ESPN Tennis, the stats suggest he should be relaxed and feel confident against Murray:
But as reported by Sky Sports' Mark Crellin, the Serb expects a tough challenge, and rightly so:
I don't think that there is any particular advantage to my side.
I think mentally, when we step on the court, sure, maybe to some extent, some small percentage, but he's playing in great form.
It's another grand slam title up for grabs for both Andy and myself. One thing for sure I know I can expect when I get on the court with him is it's going to be a very physical battle.
Djokovic hasn't played his best tennis so far during the French Open, and his road to the final has been a fairly easy one. The same can't be said for Murray, who impressed in his semi-final win over Wawrinka, the man who shattered Djokovic's dream last year.
The Scotsman continues to grow as a player and defy the odds, moulding himself into an excellent clay player in 2016. His win over Djokovic in Rome was his first against the Serb on clay, and he looks stronger now than he did in Italy.
Murray's serve remains a big weapon, but the dreadful weather conditions have made the clay slightly heavier, which should make Djokovic's advantage in the return game even greater. And while Djokovic enters the final with plenty of momentum, as he's barely been tested, Murray's win in Rome will be a factor in the mental game.
Ultimately, there's little separating the two stars, and Djokovic's defensive skills and wealth of experience might be enough to carry him to a win.
