Rafael Nadal survives Schwartzman fight to make French Open semis

  • 13-time champion beats 10th seed 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-0
  • Nadal’s streak of winning 36 sets in succession broken

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.
