Rafael Nadal looks borderline unbeatable at the moment. The No. 1 men’s tennis player in the world cruised on Friday — looking vintage in domination –, who entered the French Open semis as No. 6 player in the ATP World Tour rankings.

On Sunday, Nadal will go up against Austria’s Dominic Thiem, the eighth-ranked player in the world and someone who has defeated Nadal before. But this will be the first time they’ve met in a Grand Slam final. And of course, with it being on clay, Nadal is an overwhelming favorite.

But if you think it’s going to be a simple Sunday stroll for Nadal to get this 11th French Open title, consider that his opponent is a fitting foe on the final stage. Thiem, 24, is the only player to beat Nadal on clay in the past two years.

Nadal has won six of his nine matches against Thiem, all of them coming on that famously difficult red clay. Nadal is 49-2 since 2017 when playing on clay. Both losses came against Thiem.

Dominic needs to serve in such a way that takes his opponent off the court. He needs to start the rallies from as offensive a point as possible against Nadal. So where he moves Nadal with his serve will be very important.

Nadal is most dangerous from the middle of the court, so Thiem needs to avoid serving there. Even though on the ad court that’s the backhand which is normally what most players would target for Nadal. I still think it’s more important for him to sacrifice getting aces or free points for getting Nadal out of position away from the centre of the court. That’s the key thing to be aware of when serving.

You can serve to hit aces and winners, or you can serve to hit set-up shots so your next shot after your serve is more effective. This incidentally is what Nadal does so well.

Rafael Nadal, in reaching his 11th French Open final, keeps killing ’em with kindness

In addition to his physicality, his stamina, his will, his rocketed shots, his left-handedness, his diabolical spin and his rare capacity to take a mid-rally predicament and reverse it into some kind of optical illusion of a winner, Rafael Nadal has this curious knack that continues to wreak a living hell for opponents even 14 French Opens into his career: his humility.

Perhaps no major athlete has plied such a genuine humility to such hegemonic ends. “I have never been arrogant,” he said in Spanish late Friday, and as that has proved true throughout his long stay on a world stage, it also has lent fuel to some outrageous facts.

Rafael Nadal improved to 11-0 in French Open semifinals as he seeks his 11th title at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament, saving all seven break points he faced and overwhelming 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro 6-4, 6-1, 6-2.

The No. 1-ranked Nadal compiled a 35-20 edge in winners while making only 19 unforced errors Friday.

Nadal saved three break points at 1-all in the opening set and another three at 4-all. After holding there, Nadal broke del Potro to take that set and was on his way, taking 14 of the last 17 games.

This was the No. 5-seeded del Potro’s first semifinal at Roland Garros since 2009. He missed the tournament every year from 2013-16 because of injuries, including three operations on his left wrist. In the fourth game Friday, del Potro clutched at his left hip after being wrong-footed by one shot from Nadal and was visited by a doctor at the next changeover.

Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova

The whole world will be watching Serena Williams versus Maria Sharapova on Monday at the French Open.

It is not only a clash between two of the most famous tennis players of all time, but one that has added tension and intrigue.

It all goes back to the final of Wimbledon in 2004.Sharapova, then 17, stunned Serena Williams to win the Grand Slam on grass and in her book released nine months ago, the Russian revealed how the American sobbed after defeat.

Both women have had long periods out the game. Sharapova due to a drugs ban and Williams because of the birth of her daughter.

You have to go back nearly 14 years, to when George W. Bush was still president and “National Treasure” With Nicolas Cage was No. 1 at the U.S. box office, for the last time that Sharapova beat Williams. That was the 2004 WTA Championships, where Sharapova toppled Williams in November. That victory came just a few months after Sharapova stunned Williams, five years her senior, in the 2004 Wimbledon Final for her fist Grand Slam at just 17.

Ever since, it has been all Serena, who owns the 23 Grand Slams to Sharapova’s five. Seven of those Williams’ wins have come at majors, and three have been on red clay. Nonetheless, this is as compelling as it gets in the women’s game, given that Sharapova is the only active women’s player other than Williams with a career Grand Slam. Sharapova has also had her greatest major success at Roland Garros, where she has won two of her five slams.

Zverev vs Cilic

Alexander Zverev, suddenly a dark horse for the French Open crowd after back-to-back triumphs in Munich and Madrid will look to continue his great form when he takes on Croatia’s Marin Cilic, making his debut in a clay court Masters 1000 semifinal. Zverev, of course, won his first Masters 1000 title here last year, defeating Novak Djokovic in straight sets and the German is no doubt desperate to defend his title. But who will reach the final?

Zverev leads their head-to-head four matches to one. But it was the Croatian who was the victor in their first match, a hard-fought quarterfinal three years ago at the Washington Open, with the final score 7-6 7-5 in Cilic’s favour. Zverev then defeated Cilic in Montpellier in the second round, in another close match in which both sets went to tiebreaks. Zverev then scored a second win against Cilic in Shanghai where he won from a set behind 3-6 6-3 6-2.

He was again able to recover from a set behind in their only previous clay court match which was contested in Madrid last year. Cilic took the first in a tiebreak, but thereafter Zverev managed to take the upper hand, advancing to the third round with a 6-7 6-3 6-4 win. Their most recent match was in London last year at the ATP Finals at the O2 Arena. It was yet another close contest, with Zverev edging it in three, 6-4 3-6 6-4.

Then the match of the day: Rafael Nadal against Novak Djokovic. The Serbian leads head to head meetings 26-24, but Nadal won the last match played overall 12 years ago in the Madrid semifinals. Nadal is seeking his first final in Rome since 2014, when he lost just to Djokovic.

The three-time champion Maria Sharapova faces Simona Halep, who secured the first ranking position until French Open. The Russian leads head to head 7-1, Halep won the last one at 2017 Beijing. On clay, Sharapova won both matches: 2014 Madrid Final and 2014 French Open final.

Setting the tone with a stinging serve, Nadal served 84 percent and won 31 of 34 points played on his first serve, improving his 2018 record to 20-2, including a 16-1 mark on his favored red clay.

The Eternal City has been a site of ceaseless success for the seven-time champion, who raised his Rome record to 53-6 as he aims for his 10th trip to the final in the last 13 years.

Continuing his quest to regain the world No. 1 ranking, Nadal advanced to tomorrow’s quarterfinal clash with theatrical Italian Fabio Fognini.

The 30-year-old Fognini continued his career-best Rome run sweeping Peter Gojowczyk, 6-4, 6-4, to roll into the Internazionali BNL D’Italia quarterfinals for the first time.

Shapovalov is a shot maker with a flair for creating acute angles and sending opponents into obscure areas of the court. From the opening game, Nadal stressed the teenager’s serve earning eight break points in the Canadian’s first two service games.

To his credit, Shapovalov stood tall sliding an ace and creating a slick serve and volley play that helped him deny five break points navigating an 11-minute hold for 2-1.

Dangerous on return, Nadal was dominant on serve. The 31-year-old Spaniard stamped his second straight love hold.

By then, Nadal had won three times as many baseline exchanges as Shapovalov was delving into the frontcourt in an effort to shorten points.

Persistent pressure from the seven-time champion finally caused the Canadian to crack. Nadal converted his ninth break point, breaking for 4-3 when Shapovalov plastered a backhand into net.

Nadal reeled off 15 straight points on serve until missing a backhand into the eighth game, but quickly recovered consolidating for 5-3 after 41 minutes.

Rafael Nadal vs Alexander Zverev

Rafael Nadal will square off against Alexander Zverev in a crucial Davis Cup tie tomorrow. With Nadal coming back from injury, he will have to be at his best to beat the German. Zverev has been in fine form, reaching the finals of the Miami Open and comfortably defeating David Ferrer in his opening Davis Cup tie.

The 16-time Major winner has played the German on three occasions and has won all of them. Here are three things to expect from the clash:

Spain coach Sergi Bruguera has confirmed Nadal will play just one of the fixtures which are scheduled over Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Nadal, 30, has this week returned to the top of the ATP world rankings, despite missing the last three months through injury.

Nadal is expected to be pitted against Germay’s world No 4 Zverev, who lost to John Isner in the final of the Miami Open last week.

Rafael Nadal has not played on tour since retiring at the Australian Open in January but looking at his performance against Philipp Kohlschreiber, it is hard to fathom that the Spaniard was out for 3 months.

During his win against the German, the forehand did a lot of damage and moved Kohlschreiber around the court. With Nadal’s forehand hitting the mark, Zverev needs to be cautious and not give him too many short balls to hit. The World No. 4 has one of the most powerful double-handed backhands and can create some amazing angles, as seen during the Miami Open

“I think Rafa is going to play, I do not know if on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, but I’m sure he will be on the team,” Bruguera said.

Meanwhile, Germany captain Michael Kohlmann believes Zverev’s current form could give them the advantage heading into the tie
