French Open 2022:Rafael Nadal beats Novak Djokovic to enter semi-finals

by Kolkata Today

Most prolific rivalry in men’s tennis produced another classic, with the Spaniard coming through in four And breathe.

This match was billed as a must-watch quarter-final blockbuster since the draw was first made, and it more than lived up to the hype.
Over four hours and 12 minutes of battling tennis on Court Philippe-Chatrier, 13-time Roland-Garros champion Rafael Nadal emerged victorious against nemesis Novak Djokovic, defeating the defending champion 6-2, 4-6, 6-2, 7-6(4).

Rafael Nadal beat World No.1 Novak Djokovic to enter the semi-finals. He will take on Germany’s Alexander Zverev in the last 4. Nadal remains on track for his 14th title at Roland Garros and a record-extending 22nd grand slam title.

Stade Roland-Garros has bore witness to countless historic moments, legendary feats and heavyweight clashes during this tournament’s 131-year tenure as the crowning jewel of the French tennis calendar.
But there’s literally never been a match-up of this calibre before, and not at any other tournament either, at least not in the Open Era.
This was the first meeting between two players who own at least 20 Grand Slams singles titles each – Nadal with 21, after lifting his men’s all-time record-setting trophy at the Australian Open, and Djokovic tied for second-most after winning his 20th major at Wimbledon last year.
It’s also the first time that two players with more than 300 Grand Slam wins – Djokovic with 327 and Nadal with 302 coming into the match – and 1,000 career match wins – Nadal with 1,055 and Djokovic with 1,005 – have pitted such incredible resumes against each other.
