Nadal is also 11-0 in final appearances at the French Open and is 58-8 in career final appearances on clay court overall.
Nadal is seeking his 18th major title and record 12th French Open title.
It also allowed him to create his own piece of history, as he is now the only active male on the circuit under the age of 30 to have won a set in a Grand Slam final. "That's all I can tell you", Djokovic said.
He remains flawless in the final at the French Open, and this is the second straight year in which Nadal has beaten Thiem in the championship. Thiem has actually won four meetings against Nadal on clay, but Nadal still leads the series 7-4 on this surface.
"I think it's fine".
Giudicelli says that starting in 2021 three matches will be scheduled per day session on Chatrier and only one at night. I mean, it's not the first time that that happens in tennis, and it's not going to be the last time.
Djokovic, much the better player for most of the morning, started to put pressure on Thiem and the Austrian began to make a few unforced errors as the game tightened up again.

The police website said a bomb squad was on its way to the scene, where windows were broken in some buildings. Police said that there were no plans to evacuate residents.
"It was an unbelievable match, my first five-set match at Roland Garros", Thiem said. It was six weeks ago. Resuming at one set all, with Thiem leading 3-1, Djokovic was quickly back on track, levelling at 4-4.
After dropping a set in his first three matches (and coming close to dropping a second against Tommy Paul), Thiem responded in the second week dispatching two on-form versions of Gael Monfils and Karen Khachanov in straight sets.
"I can not explain my feelings. So I'm ready to leave all or everything what I have out on the court tomorrow". Question now is, how much does Thiem have left in the tank on a quick turnaround.
Thiem then managed to lose his own service game before again finding himself with the opportunity to break Nadal.
Djokovic could have been lining up on the opposite half this afternoon had it not been for the brilliance of Thiem.
"It's big dream for me to win on Sunday".
