Nadal beats del Potro to reach 11th French…

"He was a little unfortunate‚" said Nadal who reeled off 14 of the last 17 games‚ having seen Del Potro fail to convert any of his seven break points.

Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is in the crowd enjoying a close-fought French Open final between Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem.

"But all my semi-finals in Grand Slams were against them". "I don't know if I will win, but I will take big love from you and that's most important for me".

Nadal still trails great rival Roger Federer by four major titles although the Swiss star is more than four years older.

"I lost three times until now and no one died, so it will be OK."- Halep, commenting on whether she's anxious about losing a fourth straight major final.

Sharapova beat the Spaniard in three sets at the tournament in 2014.

The final battle between No. 7 seed Thiem and Nadal will take place on Sunday, June 10th.

The three-hour and 50-minute match, which put Del Potro in the French Open's last-four for the second time in his career, was suspended on Wednesday due to the weather, reported Efe.

"I don't have any obligation to win, first thing".

Thiem improved on serve during the second set, facing zero break points, but he was not able to seize on any of the three break points as the set went to the tie break.

The top-ranked Spaniard will next face another Argentine in Juan Martin del Potro, who upset third-seeded Croatian Marin Cilic 7-6 (5), 5-7, 6-3, 7-5.

"To beat him on clay, I would say the only chance for any player now is to be really aggressive".

Austria's Dominic Thiem played Italy's Marco Cecchinato during their men's singles semi-final match on day thirteen of the French Open. (Smiling). I made too many questions to myself. Cilic, who like Del Potro stands 1.98m tall, owns a U.S. Open title, has a beast of a serve and always looked like being his first serious test.

Seventh seed Thiem, who will be playing in his first grand slam final, is regarded as second only to Nadal on clay - albeit probably quite a distant second.

Croatian Cilic played an very bad game when serving for the set, making four unforced errors, but he was gifted another chance to serve it out after breaking Del Potro again and levelled the match at the second time of asking.

In his on-court speech after Nadal's 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 victory, the 24-year-old Thiem said: "I still remember when you won here the first time, 2005".

"If I had won the second set, I think it would have been a totally different third set", he explained.

Spain's Rafael Nadal during his quarter final match against Argentina's Diego Schwartzman.

"I came here without big expectations, just seeing how my body feels match by match". Another forehand victor from Nadal found a corner, and Thiem yelled toward his coach.

Schwartzman had a point to lead 4-2 but a forehand error allowed Nadal off the hook.
