It’s the match-up most of us were hoping for. Top seed vs second seed. World no. 1 vs o. 2. Rafael Nadal has played 101 matches at Roland Garros since 2005 and lost just two of them. One of those defeats came at the hands of, you guessed it, Novak Djokovic – and there’s a lot more than the gorgeous Coupe des Mousquetaires on the line today. We’ll show you how to live stream Nadal vs Djokovic for FREE in the 2020 French Open Men’s Final, no matter where you are.
Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic live stream
Court Philippe Chatrier will host the Nadal vs Djokovic French Open Men’s Final today, and the start time is set for 3pm local time / 2pm BST. If you’re based in the UK, the great news is that you can watch the match for free on ITV4 and the ITV website – and you can watch if you’re abroad with a VPN. We explain how below.
Nadal and Djokovic have played each other 55 times over the course of their rivalry and it’s the Serb who has the edge, with 29 wins to 26 defeats. But on clay the Spaniard has the far superior record, with 17 wins to seven defeats.
A win today would give Nadal his 100th victory at the French Open, and bring him level with Roger Federer at the top of the men’s singles game with a joint-record 20 Grand Slam titles (13 French Opens). If Djokovic is the victor, he’ll seal his 18th Slam (two French Opens) and narrow the gap to Nadal.
There’s so much at stake not just today but in the wider context of the game. But at moments this week it’s looked like Djokovic might not make it to the final at all. He suffered a major fright in the quarter-finals against Pablo Carreno Busta and was pushed the distance by Stefanos Tsitsipas after failing to convert a match point in the third. But while the Greek suffered, Djokovic found an extra gear at the last and took the final set at a canter.
Nadal’s route to the final has been far more straightforward and some might argue easier, with straight sets victories throughout. Diego Schwartzman and Jannik Sinner became the King of Clay’s latest victims, but Djokovic will surely put up a sterner test.
The Serb is 37-1 in 2020, that one being his disqualification from the US Open last month, though he’s lost three of the four French Open Finals he’s played before today. Nadal’s 2020 record, meanwhile, reads 21-4, meaning he’s played significantly less tennis than his rival this year. Could that give Djokovic the edge?
If you’re even a casual tennis fan, you won’t want to miss a Nadal vs Djokovic live stream. So keep reading for your options for watching the French Open Men’s Final free of charge.
