Paris: Roger Federer on Friday backed Rafael Nadal to defeat Novak Djokovic in Sunday's French Open final and claim a historic seventh Roland Garros title.
"My pick is not a surprising one. I obviously pick Rafa. I think he's the overwhelming favourite," said Federer, after his 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 defeat to world number one Djokovic in the semi-finals.
Djokovic needs to win on Sunday to become just the third man to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time.
