Rafael Nadal Dismisses Novak Djokovic Clash as 'Not Vital'
Rafael Nadal believes all the pressure will be on Novak Djokovic in tomorrow's French Open quarter-final with the nine-time champion dismissing the headline-grabbing collision as "not vital".
Nadal has defeated world number one Djokovic six times out of six at Roland Garros where the Spaniard boasts a record of 70 wins and just one loss.
Three of his victories against Djokovic have been in the last three years -- in the 2012 and 2014 finals and 2013 semi-finals.
In contrast to Nadal's domination, Djokovic remains frustratingly just one French Open title short of a career Grand Slam, something already achieved by the Spaniard, fellow present-day rival Roger Federer and five other men.
