Eurosport expert Mats Wilander has been analysing Sunday's French Open final between Spaniards Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer.

The bookies make Nadal a huge 1/10 favourite to triumph at Roland Garros for an astonishing eighth time but Mats feels all is not lost for Ferrer, who is playing in his first Grand Slam final at the 42nd attempt.

Mats highlights the fact that Ferrer is yet to drop a set at Roland Garros and says Nadal hasn't reached his best level - aside from that famous semi-final win over Novak Djokovic of course.

While Nadal has been looking a bit tired, Ferrer is fresh as you can be at this stage of a Grand Slam and he might just have a chance. Mats reckons an upset is not impossible.
