Djokovic is aiming to win a men’s record 23rd grand slam title and move ahead of Rafael Nadal on the most successful court of the Spaniard’s career.
Victory would see Djokovic become the oldest French Open champion in history, as well as the first player to win each of the four grand slam titles at least three times.
Ruud has reached his third grand slam final and second French Open final in a row but the Norwegian, who was beaten in straight sets by Nadal last year, admitted he is again the underdog.
“Novak is going for his 23rd, I’m going for my first. It’s a big difference,” Ruud said. Here’s everything you need to know.
