Day 15 is finally upon us at the French Open as Novak Djokovic takes on Casper Ruud as the latter continues his quest towards history.
A win for Djokovic would secure his 23rd Grand Slam title to move one clear of Rafael Nadal for the most wins by a man.
Ruud is appearing in his third Grand Slam final after losing to Nadal at Roland-Garros last year.
Preview – Novak Djokovic v Casper Ruud
Djokovic is on the brink of history – with a victory, he would also become the first man in the Open Era to secure three titles at each of the four majors.
Furthermore, it would allow him to leapfrog Carlos Alcaraz to world No.1 and take him halfway to landing the Calendar Grand Slam.
There will be no room for complacency, though, with Corretja stressing that Ruud is perfectly placed to cause an upset.
