On Sunday, Rafael Nadal will try and secure his eighth French Open championship when he takes on David Ferrer in the finals at Roland Garros. Serena Williams just bested defending champion Maria Sharapova on the women’s side Saturday, and Ferrer will be hoping to do the same, given that Nadal took home the crown last year.

Nadal and Ferrer have a long history, but it’s mostly slanted in favor of the world No. 3. Nadal has won 19 of 23 matches against Ferrer since 2004, including 16-1 on a clay surface and 2-0 at Roland Garros. Ferrer is, as expected, the underdog, though he’s been playing impressive tennis this tournament, having not dropped a set at Roland Garros this year.
