Paris: Andre Agassi has tipped Rafael Nadal to beat Roger Federer on Sunday and clinch a record-tying sixth French Open.

“Nadal is the favourite because he is more comfortable in his meetings with Federer. He is playing his sixth final, he will be at ease,” Agassi, the winner of the 1999 tournament, was quoted as saying by a news channel.

“Every time you see Nadal and Federer face each other, it's a memorable moment. It's one of the most incredible rivalries that our sport has ever had,” he said.
