Early this morning, the 2020 French Open ended the men's singles semi-final contest. The clay king Nadal defeated Schwarzman in three consecutive sets; while the world's number one Djokovic and Greek player Sisipas went through five sets of hard fights and finally won 3-2. Dana's successful meeting means that the "Big Three" between them and Federer once again won the Grand Slam finals.

In the game against Schwarzman, Nadal always took the initiative. The Argentine hopes to replicate the experience of defeating Nadal in the Rome Masters, trying to cause trouble in Nadal's serve. Nadal learned the lesson of the last defeat and did not give Schwarzman too many opportunities.
In the first two sets, even though Nadal encountered a tenacious resistance, he still took the lead with two 6-3s without a fight.
In the crucial third set, Nadal opened 3-1, but Schwarzman then broke back to equalize the small score. After the two sides battled 5 to 5, the two each won a round and the game entered the tiebreaker.
In the tiebreaker, Nadal showed a super ability to seize opportunities, and he did not hesitate to face key points. "Natto" scored 7 points in a row to win the tie-break, thereby advancing 3-0, continuing to maintain the record of not losing a set at the French Open this year.
Xiaode's promotion path is relatively difficult. Facing the outstanding representative of the new generation of players, Sisipas, Djokovic won two sets first and was equalized by his opponents. Fortunately, he played thrillingly with his stable play in the final set.
This is the fifth time that Druid has reached the French Open finals, second only to Bjorberg’s six times and Nadal’s 13 times.

Since the start of the 2015 season, Druid has won 13 of the 14 Grand Slam semi-finals he participated in. The only loss was the loss to Tim in the French Open semi-finals last year. To
Tomorrow night’s final will undoubtedly be another "Mars hitting the earth" contest. Djokovic and Nadal will have their 56th duel.
Judging from the match record of the two, it is difficult to say who can have the absolute upper hand. Druid won 29 times and Nadal won 26 games. But "Natto" has a clear advantage on the clay court. The two have played against each other seven times in the French Open, and Nadal won six games. However, the last time the two sides met at the French Open dates back to 2015, when Xiaode won the victory, and now he has greatly improved his fighting power on clay.
It is certain that no matter who wins the championship, a series of records will be set. Nadal launched an impact on the 100th French Open victory and the 20th Grand Slam trophy; and if Druid can aspire, he will create the miracle of a double slam.
