Roland Garros: Djokovic Takes On King Nadal

Must Read

The Serb took his revenge on the Spaniard on Friday, overthrowing his rival (3-6, 6-3, 7-6, 6-2 in 4:11), defending champion since 2017, after a match electric where the public was allowed to stay despite the curfew. Despite the loss of the first set, the Serbian managed to react to inflict the Mallorcan the third defeat of his career at Roland Garros.

Novak Djokovic qualified for the Roland-Garros final by beating Rafael Nadal in four sets 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 in an epic semi-final that lasted 4 hours and 11 minutes Friday night on the clay court of the Philippe-Chatrier court in Paris. The Serbian, world number one, will try Sunday to win a 19th Grand Slam title, the second in Paris after that won in 2016. He also deprives the Spaniard, 3rd in the world, of a 14th coronation at the Porte d’Auteuil , and a 21st Grand Slam title, which would have allowed Nadal to hold alone the record of victories in a major tournament. With 20 titles, the Mallorcan, who conceded his third defeat at Roland Garros, still shares this record with the Swiss Roger Federer.
