Novak Djokovic vs Stefanos Tsitsipas LIVE
1.45pm: Djokovic came through an epic four-set win over Nadal in the semi-finals – so will he be feeling it this afternoon?
“It’s not the first time that I play an epic semi-final in a Grand Slam and then I have to come back in less than 48 hours and play finals,” the world No 1 explained.
“Obviously, my physiotherapist will try to do everything possible so I can be fresh.
“Because I played enough tennis, I don’t need to train too much. It’s really now just about taking things slowly until the day of the final.”
1.30pm: Good afternoon and welcome to Express Sport’s live coverage of the French Open final between Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Djokovic is hunting his 19th Grand Slam title, which would move him to within one of Roger Federer and Nadal’s record.
Standing in the Serbian’s way is one of the leaders of the next generation in Tsitsipas.
The pair have met on seven occasions and it was the young Greek star who won two of their first three encounters.
But Djokovic has bounced back to secure four consecutive wins over Tsitsipas – and he will be hoping to make it five at Roland Garros.
