Rafael Nadal won the big quarter-final hit with Novak Djokovic at 1:16 a.m. on Wednesday morning. The 13-time French Open winner defeated the world number one after 4:12 hours with 6:2.4:6.6:2.7:6(4) and thus has the chance in Paris after 21. Major triumph in Melbourne last January followed by the 22nd title. Nadal, who will be 36 on Friday, shortened the head-to-head with Djokovic to 29:30.
Alexander Zverev had already entered the semi-finals with a four-set victory over Carlos Alcaraz, who was seen by many as a tournament favourite. The number three seeded German defeated the four-time tournament winner from Spain this year after 3:18 high-class hours with 6:4,6:4,4:6,7:6(7) and is in Paris for the second time in a row and in a major semifinal for the fifth time in his career. Zverev has yet to win a Grand Slam tournament.
