Rafael Nadal Outlasts Novak Djokovic in French Open Semifinal Marathon: 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7, 9-7


 Rafael Nadal improved to 58-1 at the French Open, outlasting Novak Djokovic in a 4-hour, 38-minute classic, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7, 9-7 to advance to Sunday’s French Open final. He’ll face the winner of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. David Ferrer Sunday in the final, which will unfortunately feel very anti-climactic.

Nadal has won the French Open seven times. Nadal is now 43-2 in 2013.
