Nadal Wins French Open Quarterfinal Showdown Against Rival Djokovic

Follow all the action from Day 12 at the French Open as the women’s semi-finals take place at Roland Garros.

The tennis world is still recovering from the epic late-night contest between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic on Tuesday, while Marin Cilic dumped Andrey Rublev out in a five-set thriller, before Casper Ruud emerged victorious against Holger Rune to complete the final four in the men’s singles. But now it’s time to watch the most dominant player in the entire sport: Iga Swiatek. The Pole has now extended her winning streak to 33 matches during the last week in Paris. Standing in her way from a second final for the 21-year-old is Daria Kasatkina. There is also the exciting prospect of a first-ever final for Coco Gauff, the 18-year-old has shone this week to break through since her meteoric rise in 2019. But the American must overcome Italian Martina Trevisan to set up a final between two of the best young stars in the sport.

The American has shown a positive mindset during her run this week, stating: “Enjoy life. No matter how good or bad my career is, I think I’m a great person. That’s a message for all the young players out there that your results, your job or how much money you make doesn’t define you as a person. As long as you love yourself, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.” Follow all the action, scores and results from Roland Garros.

That was scary. There was nowhere for Daria Kasatkina to go, nothing she could do to stop the hurricane that was Iga Swiatek. Another game to love is finished off with an ace for the Pole.

She has swept Daria Kasatkina aside and moves into the French Open final!

Swiatek 6-2, 5-1 Kasatkina*

There isn’t much going in Kasatkina’s favour. If she misses her first serve, Swiatek steps up and hammers the slower bouncier one back at her.

The top seed opens up three more break points then closes out the break to love.

Swiatek 6-2, 4-1 Kasatkina*

The wrist movement on Iga Swiatek is remarkable. She runs around the ball to seemingly set up a forehand across court who rolls her wrist over the ball and whips it over to Kasatkina’s right. The Russian can barely respond and only belts her return into the net.

The world number one is closing in on the match.

Swiatek* 6-2, 3-1 Kasatkina

Iga Swiatek has had nine fewer unforced errors over the match and is closing in on 20 winners. She moves 40-15 in front but a bit of added umph from Kasatkina forces Swiatek’s backhand return into the net.

Swiatek* 6-2, 3-1 Kasatkina

Kasatkina pulled one break point back but Swiatek won the next point and secured her first break of the second set.

She takes that form in her own service game and claims the first point before firing one out of play. 15-15.
