French Open Semi Finals: Raphael Nadal Vs Novak Djokovic

The rivalry between Novak Djokovic and Raphael Nadal will continue today as the duo competes to reach the final of French Open. Recall Nadal crushed Diego Schwartzman while Novak narrowly beat Matteo Berettinni all in the quarter-finals to book a place for the semis.

Raphael Nadal who is known for his clay court prowess will seek to equal the head-to-head record between him and Novak. Out of 57 times they have met, Novak have had 29 wins over the Nadal, although the clay court master has won more French open titles than the Serbian (Novak Djokovic).

Djokovic is chasing his 19th grand slam titles while Nadal is aiming to win his 14th French Open title's, the outcome will be decided at the Court Philippe Chatrier venue by 4pm today. All odds favor the muscle man from Mallorca if he eventually wins, though the chances that the Serbian will win at the end of the day will not be neglected at all.

Novak will draw a leverage for being the current World number one, while Nadal will seek to downplay the mentality that he is world number three, he will just love to win 89th title of his career.
