Bonjour lads & lasses ! It's the last day of Roland Garros 2016, which means it is MEN'S SINGLES FINAL DAY ! Despite all the annoying rain delays & disappointing withdrawals the last fortnight, here we are with a marquee clash for the climax. It's No.1 vs No.2. It's NOVAK DJOKOVIC vs ANDY MURRAY !

I'm @Shash3011, here to take you through the first two sets of today's final. Just so you know, I've been buried in my books all day with a Software Engineering practical exam & Viva at college tomorrow. But I won't miss THIS final for all the world ! It's Andy Murray. In a Grand Slam Final. On CLAY.

This is now the 7th Grand Slam final between Murray and Djokovic. And I can say with a lot of conviction that none of those previous 6 have had as much riding on them as this one. Not for both players, at least. Novak looking to complete a career slam today. Andy going for his first French Open title.

A couple more incentives for Novak. He is looking to become just the eighth man, fourth in the Open era, to complete the career slam. A win today would also make him just the 3rd man to hold all four majors at once (joining Rod Laver and Don Budge). Meanwhile, Andy is looking to become the first British winner at Roland Garros since Fred Perry in 1935.

Here's the H2H numbers then. Overall : Novak leads 23-10 In Slam Finals : Novak leads 4-2 On Clay : Novak again 3-1 At Roland Garros : Novak 1-0 But but but.... Last meeting : Rome 2016 Final. Murray won in straights.

The players are out on court. The weather is still pretty damp and muggy but the crowd is absolutely electric ! Not sure who the crowd will back more but I'm inclined to say Novak after last year's emotional final.

Right. We're all set. Andy to serve first. HERE. WE. GO.

Trouble for Andy early. Novak up 30-0 after a cheeky drop shot winner and a loose Muzza error. Make that 40-0 after a backhand down the line pass. 3 BREAK POINTS FOR NOVAK 1st game of the final !

Murray overhits a forehand from the baseline after a sharp Novak return to his 2nd serve. And DJOKOVIC BREAKS-to-love ! What a start if you're Novak or a fan of his ! Not so if you're Camp Andy.

Bit of deja-vu on the Djokovic serve now. It's Murray who goes up 30-0 after a backhand winner and a ripping return.
