The French Open is live on Saturday and Sunday for the finals on the men's and women's side of the tournament at Roland Garros on NBC and the NBC Sports Network Live Extra after being on ESPN and the WatchESPN website for the live stream as Novak Djokovic plays against Rafael Nadal after Nadal beat Andy Murray and that was on Philippe Chatrier for a spot in the finals and now Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep play for the women's championship final and Sharapova won the title.
Nadal comes in after winning in the quarters over David Ferrer to make it into the quarterfinals for the fifth straight time, a first in his career and now he looks to be on a course to play Djokovic. The two matched up in Italy and Djokovic won that and he has played very well on clay and now he will try and win his first Roland Garros title, while Nadal goes for number nine. Nadal could become the first player to win five tournaments in a row here and he will have to get past Murray, who played five sets and won over home country man Gael Monfils and now they play after Djokovic.
Gulbis defeated Roger Federer in the fourth round to knock him out in the earliest round ever for Fed and this is his first semis matchup and he has to go up against Djokovic. Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep are through on the women's side and Nadal now is 64-1 in his career at the tournament and has won 33 straight matches. Nadal has a chance to set a great feat and they will be on second after Djokovic plays and this would be the fourth title of the year for Nadal. The Spanish star had not dropped a set until he played against Ferrer and now he has the chance to play Murray and that should be a tough matchup.
