Rafa doesn't expect easy French win over Nole
Asked if he thinks he could beat Novak Djokovic at this year's French Open without dropping a set, Rafael Nadal, who has lost to the Serb in their last seven meetings—all finals—says he wouldn't expect another easy win. The Spaniard did not drop a set to Djokovic in their previous three French Open meetings. Djokovic, who toppled Nadal in clay-court finals in Rome and Madrid last year, lost to Roger Federer in last year's French Open semifinals.
"I don't expect winning straight sets in the third round, so I not gonna expect a win against Djokovic in three sets, especially when he beat me in, I don't know, seven times in a row," Nadal said. "That's the real thing today."
