Yesterday, we watched Li Na take victory over defending champion Francesca Schiavone, in two hard fought but relatively easy sets. Today, Roger Federer will be hoping to do the same to Rafael Nadal, the 2010 French Open champion. It's the men's final, the culmination of two weeks excellent tennis on the clay courts.

Rafael Nadal takes on Roger Federer for the French Open trophy

Federer has looked dominant out on the courts this past week, and heads into the final in good form. Rafael Nadal faced off Andy Murray in the semi-final. It was a straight sets victory but at no time did the defending champion look comfortable as he made his way through to the final. This could be quite the battle.

The action begins at 2pm GMT+1, and the Factbyte Factbox will be live for step by step coverage from 1:30pm.
