Rafael Nadal plays for an 11th French Open title against the only man to beat him on clay in the last two years, Dominic Thiem, live on NBC and streaming on NBCSports.com/live and the NBC Sports app on Sunday at 9 a.m. ET.
Top-ranked Nadal is trying to tie Margaret Court‘s record for singles titles at a Grand Slam event (Court won 11 Australian Opens, but seven came when it was the Australian Championships, an amateur event.). It would be his 17th Grand Slam singles title, moving three shy of Roger Federer‘s record 20 for men.
Standing in Nadal’s way is the Austrian Thiem in his first Grand Slam final. Thiem beat Nadal in French Open lead-up tournaments the last two seasons, but Nadal owns the head-to-head, 6-3, all on clay, including a 6-3, 6-4, 6-0 win in the 2017 French Open semifinals.
