The French Open semifinals marks the 58th meeting between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. They’re almost tied, with Djokovic boasting a narrow 29-28 lead over Nadal.
But the French Open is one of the few Grand Slam events where Djokovic has struggled in the past. He only has one French Open crown, while Nadal has a record 13 of them.
Those French Open struggles are why it took Djokovic until 2016 to complete his career Grand Slam. Nadal, by contrast, achieved his in 2011.
These two tennis titans have been giving us great matches for the better part of 15 years. And they’re continuing to add to their incredible legacies with this soon-to-be iconic match.
