Sunday 11th June.
After a strange fortnight at Roland Garros that brought early departures for big seeds in both the Men’s and Women’s draw, Sunday’s showpiece final sees two of this generations top stars do battle for arguably the hardest crown in world tennis.
Both men have been here and done it before while they’ve easily been the most consistent stars over the past couple of weeks. It should be a belter of a contest, and could be a truly historic afternoon too.
You wouldn’t wanna miss it for the world.Popular Guides Bookmaker Bonuses Can Stan The Man Make It Two In Three Years?
After ending Andy Murray’s dream in a five set thriller on Friday, Stanislas Wawrinka is now just three sets shy of lifting a fourth Grand Slam title with what would be his second in three years in Paris. While he will be considered the underdog, the 32-year-old can be quietly optimistic.
The world number three has been pretty consistent over the past three years and is now very much part of the sport’s top table. He’ll be looking to emulate what compatriot Roger Federer did in Australia by beating Rafael Nadal in the final to keep up Switzerland’s 100% record in this year’s Men’s Grand Slams. However, it won’t be an easy task.
Wawrinka trails 15-3 on the head-to-heads and has lost six of the last seven on clay. Still, if anyone has shown the ability to overcome Nadal in this tournament, he is the man. The gritty win over Murray, along with the demolitions of decent players including Gael Monfils and Marin Cilic should not be underestimated for a second.
With Wimbledon being the final piece of the career Grand Slam too, it would be the perfect way to build momentum. More importantly, though, it’d mean his won a major title in each of the last four years. But Nadal might have something to say about that.King Of Clay Gunning For Double Digits
Following a couple of disappointing years in 2015 and 2016, Nadal looks like a rejuvenated star. The 31-year-old went all the way to the final in Melbourne in the year’s first Slam and will be determined to go one better here at his spiritual home. If he does, it would be an incredible 10th crown on Court Philippe Chatrier.
The King of Clay will be firmly fancied, especially after he coasted past sixth seed Dominic Thiem in Friday’s second semi-final. Frankly, if he is in the mood on this surface, he’ll be virtually unstoppable. Wawrinka’s job is to try and stop that rhythm.
Nadal’s aggressive baseline play is perfect for this surface, and the head-to-head dominance provides yet another huge source of confidence. While it won’t be a foregone conclusion, it would be a shock to see the Spaniard mess up here.
Upset or history; either way, we should be in for a treat.French Open Final Betting: Stan Wawrinka v Rafa Nadal
Unsurprisingly, Nadal enter the final as odds-on favourite at 1/5 with William Hill while Wawrinka is underdog at 7/2.
While Wawrinka has proven himself to be a world star, there’s a good chance that Friday’s semi will have drained him a little. Against the experience, style, and quality of Nadal, anything less than 100% will fail.
In truth, the Spaniard probably isn’t quite the player he used to be. At Roland Garros, though, he is still formidable. We expect him to win with relative ease.
Not only do we expect Nadal to win, but we expect him to make his dominance felt early on as that would crush Wawrinka’s spirt.
It’s a little risk to bet against the Swiss’s serve given the way he has performed over the past fortnight. Nonetheless, Nadal is more than capable of the early break.

Rafael Nadal won the French Open for the 10th time when he beat Stan Wawrinka in the straight sets in the final of Roland Garros.
Nadal showcased his most fearsome tennis in Paris and displayed some of his finest form to date to down his Swiss opponent.
Sportsmail's WILL GRIFFEE and GLEN WILLIAMS provided all the live action with updates from our tennis correspondent MIKE DICKSON in France.
And there it is. And it looked like nothing else other than a Nadal win.
Nadal 6-1 Wawrinka* (6-2, 6-3)
The Spaniard got stronger and stronger as the tie wore on and beat his opponent into the ground.
A simply incredible performance from one of the all-time greats. Like an animal stomping his ground.
How does he make it look so easy? Every shot hit cleanly, the spin and pace is simply unplayable.
Nadal is closing in here and, unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing Wawrinka can do about it.
That was hard, hard work. Nadal came back from the brink on so many impressive Wawrinka shots there. The ground the Spaniard covers is making even the best Wawrinka shots look average.
An unforced error from the Swiss took it to deuce — who covered some ground of his own to gain advantage (with Nadal's FIRST unforced error of the first set).
Then a textbook Nadal backhand down the line brought it back to deuce.
Wawrinka gestured to the crowd for some assistance. he needs all the help he can get.
But this time it was Wawrinka's turn for unforced errors. First hitting the net and then long.
A first break looked in the offing and, with it, a glimmer of hope. Wawrinka took a 0-30 lead in the fourth game but Nadal had other ideas.
A cross-court forehand got him up-and-running this game and he romped through to game point.
Then the Swiss hit back with one down the line to take it to deuce. He desperately needed this break.
But Nadal was too strong and sent Wawrinka steaming around the court, but the Swiss could not take it. 3-1.
Nadal's speed is telling. Any time Wawrinka was marginally off Nadal made sure he paid.
But Wawrinka played with a lot of pride and earned the game. But he had to work hard for that one.
Drop shots, dominant baseline play, backhand, forehand — Nadal looks unflappable.
Wawrinka cuts a more dejected figure with each passing point. Would take something special from here.
Nadal goes 2-0 up in the final set.
Wawrinka's unforced errors are really tallying up in Paris. He cannot afford to let Nadal, who is in incredible form, back into these rallies.
He handed the Spaniard the initiative with two unforced errors at the start of the third set and was punished both times for 0-30.
Nadal punished and took the first game 40-15.
This looks bleak for Wawrinka.
Wawrinka going full Basil Fawlty there, his frustration boiling over.
He is trying to move things around tactically but nothing is working. Murray pushed him to over four a half hours on Friday, so being two sets down is a very bad position to be in against Nadal on this form.
So far the Spaniard has lost only 34 games this tournament.
Wawrinka needed to take some risks as the Spain native is dominating any rally.
It always looked as though Nadal was going to take the second set and he held serve to do so.
Wawrinka slammed his racket on the floor in frustration after losing one of his rallies. indicitive of the match thus far.
Wawrinka looked to have lost the second set. A superb cross-court double backhand from Nadal saw the Spaniard take a 0-30 lead.
But a stoic fightback from Wawrinka meant he held his serve.
Nadal to serve for the set.
Incredible. Simply sublime from Nadal. There looks to be no escape from Wawinka when the Spaniard is on serve.
He is dictating all the rallies and his forehand is packing visibly more power than the Swiss.
Finished with an ace. Clinical.
The serve and volley again from Wawrinka. This looks like his best opportunity to hold serve.
He looks as though he has now settled into this second set and this strategy is at least allowing him to hold his own.
Nadal, however, looks increasingly dangerous. He hit the best shot of the game when he smashed a running forehand down the line when Wawrinka was sitting on game point. Wow.
A terrific forehand down the line from Wawrinka looked to be the turning point in this fifth game to level at 15-15.
A couple of tremendous baseline rallies as the Swiss looked to punish anything that fell to him in the middle of the court.
But Nadal recovers well, as he so often does, and pounced on any opportunity to force Wawrinka into defence mode and struck to win the fifth.
A note: Whoever has won the first set between these two has gone on to win the match. and Nadal is also 69-0 when he has won his first set at Roland Garros. Not too encouraging for Wawrinka.
A change of tack from the Swiss. Wawrinka employs the serve and volley to nullify Nadal's superior baseline game.
Wawrinka's net approaches may well be his best way back into this second set.
Absolutely relentless. The king of clay is just getting better and better and that is ANOTHER game to the Spaniard at Roland Garros.
A forehand winner from Nadal means he romps to a 3-0 lead in the second set.
Dominant display from Nadal as he breaks Wawarinka to love. He looks relentless. His backhand is as good as it has been in a long while and the Swiss cannot keep up at the moment.
Wawrinka starts the first game of the second set well with a superb winner. But a couple of unforced errors allows the Spaniard to come in and steal the first game of the second set.
MIKE DICKSON: Very ominous for Wawrinka, at the back of the court you could see him moaning to hix box. Nadal did not return especially well in that first set but still broke twice. The Swiss out very early from his chair at the start of the second set, he wants to get on with it.
A second break and Nadal steamrolls his way to the opening set. That wall just got ten feet higher as Mr Trump might say.
Wawrinka came back from a set down to beat Djokovic in the final on this court but this is an altogether different proposition. Lets see what he can come up with in response.
Nadal is finding his range on the serve, painting all corners of the box and starting exchanges on the front foot. A simple hold for the favourite has him a game away from the first set.
Too good. Nadal races to 30-0 with a scorching forehand down the line and then has three break points. He needs two and draws first blood. It had been coming.
No respite for Warwrinka as Nadal storms to 40-0, controlling the rallies but Stan won't go away hammering a forehand winner down the line. The Spaniard loses focus temporarily but closes out the game with an ace.
The French crowd love a one handed backhand and Wawrinka possesses a lethal one. This time it goes missing but he fights his way back to 30-30. But now Nadal has a break point of his own as the Swiss sends it into the net. Quickly snuffed out with a wicked serve and dominant play from the baseline.
He his drilling every shot with some venom but can't close out an advantage. After saving four break points he eventually sees it out to keep it on serve.
A bit twitchy from both players, overcooking shots they wouldn't normally but Wawrinka finds his footing, taking it to 30-40. A precious break point but he sends a wayward backhand out for deuce. Nadal finds a 189kmph serve out wide for an ace and sees out the game.
Nadal lassoes a couple of forehands with wicked topspin but Wawrinka is going for his shots and forces Nadal onto the backfoot, eventually forcing the errors. He takes the game only conceding one point, that will be a weight off.
Nadal straight into his rhythm as Wawrinka fires long on the first point, tees up the Spaniard for a smash and then makes two unforced errors. A service game to love first up. Ominous.
A blazing hot day and the patrons are packed in for what promises to be a humdinger. Nadal to serve first.
Forecast to get up to 30 degrees here on a sweltering afternoon, which is going to make it easier for these two to hit through the court.
As ever the match does not start at the scheduled hour - we have had a ceremony recognising Brazil's former Roland Garros champion Gustavo Kuerten, followed by Nicole Kidman appearing in the President's Box to open a box showing off the trophy.
All things being equal you have to think Nadal is going to win this, but there are two factors that do not make it anything like a foregone conclusion. Firstly Wawrinka has won all three Grand Slam finals he has played - he is not intimidated by the big occasion.
Secondly Nadal's nerve has not been tested here. It is not as strong as it once was and if Wawrinka can make it close then it will be interesting to see how he reacts.
Both of these men have been here before and the jitters will surely subside after connecting with a few in the warm-up.
Not long to wait now with Nadal vs Wawrinka your afternoon entertainment. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday. Can the Spaniard pick up the Decima?
Stan isn't exactly brimming with self belief but he understands Nadal has never been beaten in a French Open final.
Wawrinka is a three-time slam champion and on his day can trouble the best but the Swiss understands the mountain he has to climb this afternoon.
"I think to play Rafa on clay in French Open in a final is probably the biggest challenge you can have in tennis." pic.twitter.com/TNhlx9KQp8
The stars are out in force for this one and Nicole Kidman is just one of many filing into the arena.
The French Open reaches a climax this afternoon and surprise surprise, the king of clay is back where he belongs.
A win today against Stan Wawrinka and they might as well give Rafael Nadal the keys to Philippe Chatrier. It would be his 10th French which has a nice ring to it.
The Stanimal stands in his way and Andy Murray will attest that the Swiss is no walkover, having been dumped out in the semi.
Keep it with us as this one should be an epic.RELATED ARTICLES Share this article Share or comment on this article Most watched Sport videos MOST READ SPORT

Rafael Nadal Stan Wawrinka ATP: Roland Garros – FINAL 14:15 AM
Rafael Nadal – Stan Wawrinka Preview
Roland Garros’s enormous champion is former world number one Novak Djokovic, who in 2016 managed to conquer the only grand slam trophy he missed in his career. In that final, Nole defeated ATP leader Andy Murray with a score of 3-1 in sets.
The most successful player in the history of this competition is none other than Rafael Nadal, with 9 titles to date. His last title won in Paris came in 2014 when Rafa defeated Novak Djokovic with a score of 3-1 in sets, shattering the hope of the Serbian to win his first trophy at Roland Garros.
The Roland Garros tournament is no stranger to the Swiss player. Stan has 3 consecutive semifinals in Paris, but also two finals played in the last 3 years. In 2015, he conquered the first and only title so far, through his success in front of Novak Djokovic, a score of 3-1 in sets.
At this edition, Wawrinka had a perfect run until the semifinals, winning in minimum sets by Jozef Kovalik (152 ATP), Aleksandr Dolgopolov (89 ATP), Fabio Fognini (29 ATP), Gael Monfils (16 ATP) and Marin Cilic (8 ATP). In the penultimate act, he had the first really tough test at this tournament.
Andy Murray, the finalist in 2016, was the Swiss opponent, and the two offered a real show to those who were present both in the stands and in front of the screens. The British player led 2-1 to sets, at those times, Wawrinka again showed why he is one of the strongest players in the circuit from a psychological point of view. He managed to come back and take his fourth act to the tiebreak, because he did not even give Andy a chance in a set where the British failed to get his job.
The most titled player in the history of this competition has scrolled to this edition. On his way to the final, Rafa did not give up even one set, but his only really difficult opponent came just in the semifinals. In that game, the Iberian had Dominic Thiem (7 ATP), probably the best player in the world on clay, after Nadal. The Spanish player had no mercy towards his young opponent, who resisted only the first two sets, ceded at 3 and 4. In set 3, Rafa benefited from Thiem’s fatigue, before which he did not even give up Game, winning that last act with the score of 6-0.
In 2017, Rafa showed a truly disarming form for his opponents, the only player who really managed to challenge him being his great rival, Roger Federer, who defeated Rafa both in the Australian Open final and In Miami, but also in the 8th Indian Wells.
This season was dominated by Nadal, who won the Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid tournaments, winning a total of 23 wins. The only defeat in 2017 suffered on the clay was the one in Rome, where it yielded in the minimum set in front of Dominic Thiem, score 6-4, 6-3.WATCH >>> Rafael Nadal – Stan Wawrinka
