David Ferrer will be up against compatriot Rafael Nadal in the men’s final of the ongoing French Open on Sunday at the Court Philippe Chatrier, Paris.

He ended Frenchman, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s hope with a 6-2, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2 victory on Friday, realising his first Grand Slam final dream; ending France’s hope of a first French Roland Garros champion in 30 years as well.

Ferrer has been tagged a huge underdog against seven-time champion Nadal, however the Spaniard did succeed in ending a run of defeats in his first five Grand Slam semi-finals after subduing a determined Tsonga.

“I’m very happy. This tournament is very special for me and to be the first final of a Grand Slam in Roland Garros is amazing,” Ferrer said after his win over Tsonga.

“Now I want to enjoy this moment, to rest tomorrow (Saturday), and to try my best in the final (Sunday).

“I don’t feel like the favourite, I feel that I am a finalist.” Nadal said. “If you are not playing perfect (against Ferrer) you will be in big, big trouble.”
