Main article: 2012 French Open

Rafael Nadal was the defending champion and successfully defended his title defeating Novak Djokovic 6–4, 6–3, 2–6, 7–5 in the final.[1] The win was Nadal's seventh French Open title, surpassing Björn Borg's record of six French Open titles and tying Pete Sampras' Wimbledon record for most title wins at one major and Chris Evert's for most French Open titles achieved by a man or woman.[2][3]

Novak Djokovic had the chance to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four Grand Slam titles at once, having won the previous year's Wimbledon and US Open titles as well as that year's Australian Open (all wins against Nadal), but lost the final to Rafael Nadal.

Due to rain, the final was postponed to Monday, June 11, 2012 at 1:00 local time, after the score on Sunday was 6–4, 6–3, 2–6, 1–2 and Djokovic with the serve, and after 3 hours of play of the 3:49 total length.[4]
