World tennis number one Novak Djokovic will face Andy Murray in the title clash of the Men's singles of the French Open at Roland Garros in Paris on 5 June.

Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic has reached the French Open final in four of the last five years but has never won the title so far.

On the other hand, Andy Murray is the first British man to reach a Roland Garros final since 1937. It will be the pair's seventh meeting in a Grand Slam final.

Djokovic has an advantage over Murray as the Serb has won four of their six meetings in Grand Slam finals and 23 of their 33 career meetings.

In the women's doubles final, Russian pair Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina will meet French pair Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic on 5 June.

Meanwhile, Spaniard Garbine Muguruza lifted the women's singles title by defeating Serena Williams in a one sided summit clash by 7-5 and 6-4 at Rolland Garros.
