Two-time defending champion Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 in the final to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2012 French Open.[1] The win was Nadal's seventh French Open title, surpassing Björn Borg's record of six French Open titles and tying Pete Sampras' Wimbledon record for most title wins at one major and Chris Evert's for most French Open titles achieved by a man or woman.[2][3]

Novak Djokovic had the chance to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four Grand Slam titles at once, having won the previous year's Wimbledon and US Open titles as well as that year's Australian Open (all wins against Nadal), but lost the final to Rafael Nadal. It was Djokovic's 4th consecutive loss to Nadal at Roland Garros, but it was the first time that Djokovic would take a set from Nadal at the Parisian grand slam. Djokovic would achieve this feat 4 years later at the 2016 French Open.

Federer was attempting the chance to become the first male player in the Open Era to achieve a double career Grand Slam, the third man would do so. He lost to Djokovic in the semifinals.

Due to rain, the final was postponed to Monday, June 11, 2012 at 1:00 local time, after the score on Sunday was 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 1-2 and Djokovic with the serve, and after 3 hours of play of the 3:49 total length.[4]
