The 2012 French Open is down to just six competitors, four on the men's side and two on the women's. We already know the two ladies competing for the title on their part of the tournament, and now we'll find out which two men will look to claim the championship.
On Friday at beautiful Rolland Garros, four of the world's top six players will battle on the messy clay surface. It should be a thrilling day of tennis, especially since they should all be rested from an off-day on Thursday.
Here is the schedule for today:
Matches & Start Times:
2. Rafael Nadal vs. 6. David Ferrer, 4 a.m. MST
1. Novak Djokovic vs. 3. Roger Federer, 7 a.m.
TV Schedule: You'll have to do a bit of channel flipping if you hope to watch on Friday morning. The Tennis Channel will provide the live telecast of the Nadal vs. Ferrer match. At 11 a.m., NBC will begin airing the Djokovic vs. Federer battle. For those on the east coast you should get that match live, but those on the west coast will have to watch a tape-delayed version.
