Rafael Nadal v Andy Murray Live
The mens semi-finals of the French Open at the Roland Garros in Paris will see Rafael Nadal go head to head with Andy Murray of Britain.
The King of Clay, Rafael Nadal, has hardly put a foot wrong in what is clearly his favorite grand slam. The Spanish leftie beat his countryman David Ferrer in the quarterfinals quite comprehensively after having lost the first set at 4 games to 6. Nadal won the next three sets 6-4, 6-0, 6-1 to make it to the semis.
Andy Murray has also had a good French Open so far and showed a lot of determination in his last couple of matches to make it into the semis. While he beat Fernando Verdasco of Spain in straight sets in the fourth round, he showed a lot of grit and determination to get past local lad Gael Monfils in an exciting five setter – 6-4, 6-1, 4-6, 1-6, 6-0 – in the quarterfinals.
In their last ten competitive matches, Nadal has only lost on one occasion – against Novak Djokovic in Rome – while Murray’s form has not been something to boast about. He exited in the second round in Madrid and in the third round at Madrid. It was the World Number 1 who sent him out in the second occasion.
While the pair have met each other on numerous occasions on court, Nadal has always won all their duels on the red court so far. This bit of statistic will not be an encouraging sign for the Brit who is looking to win the French Open for the very first time in his career.
