The end of Roland Garros 2020 holds a new duel between Rafa Nadal y Novak Djokovic, possibly one of the best games to watch right now. The Serb, however, is aware that handicapped party, since the Philippe Chartier is territory conquered by the manacorense.
The undisputed king of Paris clay has a balance almost impossible to match there, with only 2 defeats in 99 games disputed, but Djokovic claims to have his weapons to beat him.
“Conditions are different than what we have in May or June. I think I could have better options, because the ball does not bounce over the shoulder as he likes. But beyond the conditions, it is Rafa, he is in the final and we play on clay “, admitted the world number 1 tennis player after his match against Tsitsipas.
That Nadal is the favorite does not imply that ‘Nole’ does not have his weapons. He is one of the few who knows what it is to beat Nadal in this tournament. “Playing with him to five sets in the final at Roland Garros … I know what it feels like. I’ve lost to him most of the games I’ve played on this court, but also I won a match in 2015 in consecutive sets in the quarterfinals. That is my reference game, “he said.
Regardless of how he is going to face the game, Djokovic says he really wants to play “a great battle” against Nadal.
