Day 6 of the French Open 2017 will see Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in action
After five days of glorious sunshine in Paris, rain is expected this afternoon which will likely disrupt some of the later matches of the day.
Yesterday, top seed Andy Murray continued his progress through the draw although not without having to work for it as Slovakian Martin Klizan took the first set off the world No1.
However, the Scot recovered to win in four sets but the match took more than three-and-a-half hours, a fate both Nadal and Djokovic will hope to avoid.
The Spaniard takes on Nikoloz Basilashvili in the first ever meeting between the two players, second on Philippe Chatrier.
Djokovic meanwhile will face a slightly more familiar foe in Diego Schwartzman – the world No41 lost to the Serb at the US Open three years ago in a routine straight-sets encounter.
