Overview

Djokovic dropped his first set of the tournament during his win over Roberto Bautista Agut in the fourth round at Roland Garros. The match that was set to take place on Monday (30 May), was finally played out on Wednesday (2 June), which means the world number one plays on consecutive days due to fixture congestion owing to the weather. The French Open is the only Grand Slam title missing in the Serb's list of wins and he is looking like the favourite, despite Andy Murray and defending champion Stan Wawrinka's progress to the semi-finals in the other half of the draw.

Berdych, on the other hand, came through a comfortable straight set victory over David Ferrer, but will also be playing on consecutive days owing to the rain delays in recent days. The seventh seed will have his task cut out against Djokovic, but will take heart from the fact that his last victory over the world number one came on clay at the 2013 Rome Masters.

French Open history

Djokovic and Berdych have never faced each other in the French Open, but have played each other twice each at Wimbledon and the Australian Open with the Serb winning on three of those occasions, the only loss being the semi-finals at SW19 in 2010.
