The men's final for the 2012 French Open will be according to plan; No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 2 Rafael Nadal had little trouble winning their respective semifinal matches on Friday.
Djokovic took down No. 3 Roger Federer 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 and has now won 27 straight Grand Slam matches. He is one win away from becoming the first man in 43 years to win four straight major championships. From SI.com:
"I have this golden opportunity to make history. This motivates me. It really inspires me. I'm really grateful to be in this position, obviously," said the 25-year-old Djokovic, who owns five Grand Slam titles to Nadal's 10. "And look, I'll try to prepare for that match and get my hands on that trophy, if I can."
Nadal took down No. 6 and fellow Spaniard David Ferrer 6-2, 6-2, 6-1. Nadal has owned Roland Garros, winning 51 of 52 career matches. Sunday's final should be a historic match, no matter who wins. From SI.com:
