El Rey of Clay

French Open – Djokovic vs. Nadal – Friday, 11:30 a.m. ET

We couldn’t be more excited for the 58th career meeting between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. The last time these two titans met at Roland Garros, the Spaniard won in straight sets and dropped just two games in the first two. We expect things to go down similarly this time.

Dominating a tennis match starts with break points. Nadal is in better form in that regard: On clay courts this season, Rafa has a better percentage of both break points converted (43% to 41%) and saved (69% to 60%). Both players dropped a set in their quarterfinal matches, but Nadal finished his match stronger — and his opponent, Diego Schwartzman, is stronger on clay than Joker’s, Matteo Berrettini.

Rafa is the king of clay for a reason. He’ll cruise to another French Open Final.

Pick: Rafael Nadal Game Spread -4.5 (-132)*
