What an exciting evening this has been for me, staying glued to the TV set and switching channels between the French Open final as well as the high-scoring World Cup cricket match between India and Australia!
It may be that way for the next two hours. Nadal is cruising along well, so that may be the first to end.
Leading two sets to one and a break up in the fourth set, the 12th title for Nadal at Roland Garros appears to be well within his grasp.
Dominic Thiem, however, has been a revelation, winning a five-setter against top-seeded Djokovic in the semi-final and giving the King of Clay the stiffest challenge in the tournament.
