The French Open semi-finals consisted of Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal. Djokovic won 3:6, 6:3, 7:6, 6:2 in the final, and he will play against Greece’s Sisipas team.
Hope this is only the third defeat in Paris in his career. He lost once to Robin Soderling and twice to Djokovic.
Tonight, Novak Djokovic became Nadal’s first tennis player to win the semifinals of the French Open. The king of Paris and the man who won the French Open 13 times has never been eliminated in the semifinals. Djokovic managed to do the impossible.
In a game that lasted 4 hours and 10 minutes, we watched a wonderful tennis match, full of twists and turns and incredible moves. Djokovic finally celebrated. On Sunday he will compete for the 19th Grand Slam title against Stephenos Sisipas, who eliminated Alexander Zverev in his first final. .
The start of the game did not imply what would happen. In just 35 minutes of tennis, Nadal was 5:0 and Djokovic had nowhere to go on the court.
However, the Serb returned to the game and played three games, but failed to achieve a complete reversal. Nadal won 6-3 in the first set.
In another story. Djokovic played better and won the set with the same 6-3.
The third set is a perfect tennis school for both players. We watched the amazing atomic tennis, and Djokovic only won in the tie-break after a 98-minute battle.
At that moment, 23 hours had passed. According to the rules and laws of the French authorities, the police had to empty the stands due to the curfew. But the organizers decided that the audience could stay till the end, which aroused real enthusiasm.
Nadal immediately led 2-0 in the fourth set, but he could do those two games. Djokovic played in the finals in the next six games.
