French Open TV Schedule: How to Watch Roger Federer vs. Novak Djokovic Semifinal
The highlights of Friday’s French Open action at Roland Garros shouldn’t be hard to pick out. After the women’s semifinal clashes on Thursday, it’s the men’s turn on Friday.
In the first tilt, top seed Rafael Nadal, already a five-time French Open champ despite turning just 25 on Friday, squares off against Andy Murray, the No. 4 seed. Nadal holds a 10-4 lifetime record against the Brit and is an astonishing 43-1 in his career at Roland Garros.
“None of that bodes well for Murray, but the Scot does have reasons for optimism,” suggests David Tutton of the official French Open website. "The Spaniard's form in the earlier rounds was not as impressive, and should he slip back to those standards, [Murray] has a real chance.”
The other semi is the one everyone will be watching: No. 2 seed Novak Djokovic, who is currently on a 43-match winning streak, versus 16-time Grand Slam champ and No. 3 seed Roger Federer.
Even Nadal described this match as "The best player of the world today against the best player [in] history," so it’s fair to say it has the makings of a memorable one.
