Rafael Nadal leads the clay-court head-to-head against Novak Djokovic 16-7

Novak Djokovic says beating Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros is one of the “ultimate challenges” in tennis as he prepares to begin his clay-court campaign at the Monte-Carlo Masters.

The world No 1 has beaten Nadal just once at the French Open in seven previous meetings and the 31-year-old is bidding for a third title in the principality this week.

Djokovic is expected to pose the biggest challenge to Nadal’s quest for a remarkable 12th Monte-Carlo title and he says his great rival’s French Open dominance is comparable to the success Roger Federer has enjoyed at Wimbledon.
