Live blog: Nadal, Djokovic battle for French Open title, No. 1 ranking

This is what we wanted all along.

After two weeks on the red clay of Paris, it comes down to the world's best two players -- No. 1 Rafael Nadal and No. 2 Novak Djokovic -- in the final of the 2014 French Open.

With eight titles in Paris already to his name, Nadal is the most decorated player in French Open history. Sunday, he puts his incredible 65-1 all-time record at Roland Garros to the test against Djokovic in the title match. Will top-ranked Nadal make it nine titles in 10 trips to the clay-court major? Or will Djokovic break through at the one Slam he has yet to conquer?

The winner adds another Slam title to a growing mantel -- Nadal currently owns 13 major trophies; Djokovic has six -- and will be the world No. 1 when Monday's rankings are released.

Follow all the action from Sunday's match below with our game-by-game live blog.

First set

Come back at 9 a.m. ET Sunday for the action.
