Rafael Nadal has reigned as King of Clay almost continuously since 2005.

But last year Djokovic overpowered him against Philippe Chatrier, who won 3-6 6-3 7-6 6-2 in the semifinals before winning his second Roland Garros title.

This year, the two will meet in the quarterfinals because Nadal has dropped to fifth place in the world rankings.
