Event of the day

Our event of the day is the men’s French Open Final from Roland Garros as Stan Wawrinka takes on Rafael Nadal. It is set up to be a thrilling spectacle on the Philippe-Chatrier court this afternoon. Nadal comfortably beat Austrian Dominic Thiem in straight sets in his semi-final. The Spaniard is aiming for an incredible 10th Roland Garros title and a win today would see him move past Pete Sampras into second place in the all time men’s Grand Slam list with 15 titles. Wawrinka came through a titanic five set win against world number one Andy Murray to make it to the final. The Swiss has one French Open title to his name after winning in 2015 against Novak Djokovic. A Wawrinka win against the king of clay this afternoon would see him win his 4th Grand Slam title of his career. After a fortnight of action, it comes down to two of the very best fighting it out for the French Open title.
