Schwartzman pushes Djokovic to 5 sets. Or should I rather say Djoko is on the verge of preventing an upset? The world number 2 took the fourth set and currently leads the decider. Definitely not the best way to win a third round match. Top seeds try to finish the early rounds as early as possible to stay fresh for the grand battle -- Ask Nadal

Scores now: 5-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, 4-1

And guess who survived.
Djokovic beats Schwartzman
5-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, 6-1

to move to the fourth round

French Open WTA

Three tops seeds fell Sunday.
Venus Williams fell like a pack of cards to Swiss Timea Bacsinszky after taking the first set
7-5, 2-6, 1-6

14th WTA ranked Kristina Mladenovic of France overcame 4th ranked Garbine Muguruza of Spain
by 2 sets to 1

Meanwhile former world number one Caroline Wozniacki continued to amass points in her bid to move up to the top 10 when she overcame her 9th ranked Russian rival Svetlena Kuznetsova, to reach the Quarter Finals. The four Grand Slam title still eludes the Dane despite her holding on to the Number one spot for a long spell in the past. Will she make it this time? First she will have to beat her next opponent in World number 47 Jelena Ostapenko from Latvia, who came back from losing the first set to send WTA Number 22, Samantha Stosur home.

ATP Event
At the Male event, the chances of winning a 10th French Open title remained bright for world number 4 Rafael Nadal, as he continued his cruise towards the championship match still yet to drop a set. However, if he succeeds to win his quater final bout against world number 20 CArreno-Busta, he will meet a stronger challenge in the semis. And that will be the winner of the QF match between Dominic Thiem and Novak Djokovic. Both players have beaten Nadal on clay. Although Djoko have not gotten the better of Nadal this year, he has beaten Nadal four times on clay in the past, one coming in the QF French Open in 2015. Thiem on the other hand, will have a chance to beat Nadal for the second consecutive time (having beaten him in Italy last month) if he is able to withstand the baseline mastery of world number two Djokovic.

We may be about to witness a turning of a new chapter in Male tennis on the clay surface.
Wait, but not yet. King of Clay, Rafael Nadal is still at the helm of affairs in this surface but his next opponent in Dominic Thiem may prove to just be his greatest rival on clay for three reasons.

1. Nadal's latest of two wins over the Austrian this year was a close one.
2. Thiem beat Nadal in their third meeting just last month in Rome IN STRAIGHT SETS.
3. Thiem just vanquished Novak Djokovic. Yes I chose the word vanquished intentionally. It was sweet revenge considering that he had lost to the Serb in Rome at the semis. This time he beat Djokovic in straight sets, winning the last set 6 to nil.

NO wonder he is already called the prince of clay. Will he beat Nadal again in the Semi Final? Prior to the upcoming encounter, the duo have only met once at the French Open in 2014. That round 64 match was won by Nadal.
It's 2017, Will this be another sweet revenge for Thiem.

French Open ATP SEMI FINALS

Andy Murray of Britain and Stan Wawrinka are currently slugging it in one of the semi finals of the day.
The score is:
Murray/Wawrinka 7-6, 3-6, 6-5.
In fact at the time of writing this Murray just broke the Swiss. And he will be serving to take the third set. Will this be a five-setter?

In the other semis of the day Rafael Nadal of Spain takes on Dominic Thiem of Austria

So happy to see Stan da man give the much overrated Andy Murray a serious beat down today.

Hopefully, Rafa would take care of business so we can see Rafa v Stan Sunday morning.

O pari

I can't stand that dude. The British and the American media wants to make him the best thing since slice bread. Murray didn't even win a major before the media starting building castles in the sky for him with that silly "the big four" crap. Then they were grouping Murray in the company of Roger, Rafa, and Novak who had all won majors in double digits!

He's the media's tennis golden boy just as Cristiano Ronaldo is the media's golden boy in soccer.

Okay not to say Ronaldo does not deserve his accolades.

Well back to Tennis it's already old news that Nadal vanquished Thiem just as the latter did Djoko.

it's Stan versus Nadal for the championship match.

Hey and in the WTA, an unseeded player just won the French Open. I can't remember when last this happened. I probably was not born then.

Yeah, I was glad that Ostapenko won. I like Halep but I can't stand her coach - Darren Cahill, the Australian guy. He's an opportunist ... big time.

As per tomorrow's finals, it's gonna be all Nadal. He's just in the zone right now. The only question is: can he win the French Open without dropping a set.

Come to think of it a Latvian.

Yes Nadal has all the advantage. The Freshest because he has played the shortest matches coming into the Finals. Stan just played a 5-setter.
But let's not write him off. Has Nadal ever lost at the Finals in Philippe-Chatrier Court?

The Grass season will be interesting.

Nope. Never lost a finals there. It's gonna be a competitive match but I don't think that Stan would have enough to stop the king of clay.
I will say Rafa in 4 sets. But I won't be surprised if he wins in straight sets either. He's that good.

And I will put him as a favorite for Wimbledon as well, along with Roger.

Yes French Open title definitely gives him the momentum going into the Grass season. Nadal in four sets. It will be a BIG BIG upset (no disrespect to Stan), if Stan wins.

come Wimbledon come..
