Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal

This is the way it was supposed to be — Roger Federer going against his clay-court nemesis in Rafael Nadal. While Federer owns him away from the French Open, Nadal has been so dominant on clay, he’s actually seeking his fourth-straight French Open title. But is this the year Federer breaks through and wins the French Open, the only major title he’s lacking from his resume?

If Federer is going to win, it’s fitting he’ll have to go through Nadal to do so. To advance, Federer beat local favorite Gael Monfils 6-2, 5-7, 6-3, 7-5. As for Nadal, he breezed into the Finals handling Novak Djokovic in straight sets. Again, looking at the preceding semi-final matches, it seems like Nadal has the advantage going in. He expended less energy dispatching his opponent and, of course, clay is his dominant surface.

However, to overlook Federer’s chances her are foolhardy. I mean, he’s only been the most dominant player in the world for a few years now…

The match takes place Sunday on the Chatrier court. Oh yeah, all apologies for the quick-and-dirty NBA Finals promotional images rip-off. Although, the image does seem fitting — you know, being an individual sport, and all.
