- 13-time champion beats 10th seed 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-0
- Nadal’s streak of winning 36 sets in succession broken
It was uncomfortable and it cost him his run of winning 36 sets in succession at the French Open, but Rafael Nadal has lived up to his half of the deal. The 13-time French Open champion responded to a typically thorough examination from Diego Schwartzman by devastating him, beating the Argentinian 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-0 to reach the 16th semi-final of his career. He now awaits a possible 58th encounter with Novak Djokovic next.
