2015 FRENCH OPEN TENNIS MEN'S FINAL
June 7, 2015  | By David Bianculli

NBC, 9:00 a.m. ET

 

Yesterday, American Pharaoh completed a race to destiny by becoming the first Triple Crown winner since 1978. Today, at the 2015 French Open, Novak Djokovic gets a shot at attaining some sports destiny of his own, with a chance to complete his personal Grand Slam by winning, at long last, the French Open. But even after beating his long-time dominant clay-court rival, Rafael Nadal, in this year’s tournament, and taking two days to defeat semifinal opponent Andy Murray, Djokovic still has one more man to beat before claiming the trophy. Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland, ranked No. 8 to Djokovic’s No. 1, had made it to today’s final – and got to rest all day yesterday, while Djokovic had to play his final two sets against Murray in a two-day marathon.
