In a dramatic French Open semifinal on Friday, the No. 3 seed Rafael Nadal held on to defeat world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in five exhilarating sets in a little under five hours. 

In addition to that, his countryman, the No. 4 seed David Ferrer, also advanced to his first French Open final after soundly defeating Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets during his semifinal contest.

It will be Ferrer's first Grand Slam final, and it comes on his favorite surface, clay. 

Reaching his first French Open championship, however, was the easy part. Now the feisty Ferrer must continue doing the improbable by taking out the No. 3 seed—the world's best ever clay-courter—Rafael Nadal.

Nadal is bidding for his eighth French Open title with his fourth consecutive win on the grounds of Stade Roland Garros. With his game tightening and improving as the matches rolled by, Nadal is in top clay-court form—ready to make history on Sunday. The only man standing in his way is the man who never quits, David Ferrer.

So who will win on Sunday? Read the following analysis and prediction.
