Not only does Djokovic have his Roland Garros crown on the line, if he is beaten by Nadal, then he could lose his No.1 ranking. But that will only happen if Medvedev reaches the final, or if Zverev is crowned champion in Paris.
Nadal for his part hinted that should he lose to Djokovic, it might well be his last ever game at the French Open after having been plagued by a foot injury since 2021.
"I haven't played Djokovic for a year and it's a big challenge," Nadal said before the quarter-final.
"He's won the last nine matches, he's the Rome champion and he'll be confident.
"I know my situation and I accept it. What I'm going to do is fight, I can't complain because I'm in the quarter-finals.
"Two and a half weeks ago, even though I had hopes, I didn't know if I was going to be here - and I'm enjoying the quarters. Every match could be my last at Roland Garros."

Djokovic vs Nadal live stream: how to watch French Open quarter-final online, start time, free channels
World No.1 Novak Djokovic faces 13-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal in a quarter-final clash today that's all the more intriguing because it's so early in the tournament. The sun is getting low as we head for this evening's tennis thriller. How fitting given that this could be one of the last chapters in one of tennis' greatest ever rivalries. Read on as we explain how to watch a Djokovic vs Nadal live stream wherever you are - including ways to watch the 2022 French Open absolutely FREE.
Rafael Nadal is the main reason that Novak Djokovic has only won the French Open twice. The Clay Court King has beaten the Serb seven times at Roland Garros - but has the tide turned?
There's no doubt that the lion's share of the Roland Garros faithful will be saving their cheers for Nadal under the floodlights of Court Philippe-Chatrier.
If anything, the adversity makes Djokovic even more dangerous, and the ease with which the reigning champion has dispatched of his opponents on the clay this year has been frightening - he's yet to drop a set at this year's tournament. But even if that changes here, he knows he's got what it takes to outlast Nadal, as he did in last year's extraordinarily entertaining semi-final clash.
Felix Auger-Aliassime forced Nadal to face his own mortality in the last round, taking the Spaniard to the brink but also extracting some of his best tennis of the year. Incredibly, that was only the third five-setter that Nadal has ever had to play at Roland Garros, and having been shorn of action ahead of this tournament, the extended workout may have been a blessing in disguise for the man who turns 36 this week.
These two always demand the very best from each other, and here's how you can watch a Djokovic vs Nadal live stream today at the 2022 French Open from wherever you are in the world.
