Rafael Nadal reaches 13th Roland Garros final after defeating Diego Schwartzman

Defending champion Rafael Nadal became the first finalist at the 2020 French Open with a straigh forward win over Argentine Diego Schwartzman.

Since our champ lost in Rome, many people were expecting a much closer contest, but the world No. 2 was better player from the start, winning 6-3, 6-3, 7-6(0). He has now won 97 of his 99 matches at Roland Garros.

After the match, Rafa said:

“It’s always special to play here, to be in the final another time – it’s always a special moment.

“I made a couple of mistakes [after winning the first two sets]. He played some good points. I then missed two volleys. I know against Diego he makes more breaks without a doubt.

“I lost to him in Rome recently so I know it’d be a tough match.

“Three days ago he played an amazing match against Dominic Thiem. I looked at what happened in that match and what happen in to me in Rome and tried to change that.”

Rafa is now one win away from a century of victories on the Parisian clay courts as well as a record-equalling 20th men’s major title.

  3. ND looks as if he doesn’t want to be there. Don’t be surprised if he claims he lost because he was injured.
