The French Open final for 2014 is on Sunday for the men and Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are playing at Roladnd Garros and it starts up at 9 am ET for the Roland Garros championship and it's streaming online live from NBC and the NBC Sports Network website after Maria Sharapova won against Simona Halep in Paris and now it has a very anticipated men's final matchup and now Sharapova has won the championship for the women's side.
Sharapova now has been to three straight finals at Roland Garros and this one comes after she lost to Serena Williams last year and no matter what happens on Saturday, there will be a new champion with William getting upset earlier in the tournament and it would be the first for Halep and she has really moved up the rankings over the past year and a win here would be huge moving forward. Sharapova was able to get past Eugenie Bouchard in the semis and now she is in sights of another Grand Slam and she has played very well and it would be her fifth overall if she gets that and a second slam at Roland Garros.
Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will face off in the men's side of the draw for the finals and on top of a trophy being at stake and plenty of history, the number one ranking also will be up for grabs for the players. Nadal comes into the finals having lost just one set during his time at the tournament this year and Djokovic has also played well and he rolled into the finals after winning over Ernests Gulbis and now he looks to play against Rafa for the title. Djokovic beat Nadal in the warm-up tournament for this event, but that was in three sets and this is five and a ton will be on the line.
Nadal has only lost once in his career in Paris and that was years ago and now he is going for his fifth straight championship at Roland Garros against a player going for their first Paris win. Nadal is now 65-1 after being Andy Murray at the French in straight sets and now he gets the chance to try and beat his biggest rival in Nadal. Djokovic had a four set match against Gulbis after he won the first two and they have met here numerous times, with Nadal winning over Dojo in the finals in 2012 and in the semis in 2007, 2008 and then again last year.
The women's side of the draw saw a number of upsets this year, including Li Na, Serena Williams and the rest of the top seeds and Sharapova was the last one standing. She now is into her ninth career Grand Slam final and she has done it while losing the first set in some matches and she has shown that it doesn't bother her in the least and she won over Eugenie Bouchard in a tough match after losing the first set and then winning the second 7-5 before taking 6-2 in the third. Nadal is going for a record trophy here and he has been fantastic on clay and at Roland Garros.
