Tsitsipas, Zverev to do battle in other semifinal

Novak Djokovic defeated Italy’s Matteo Berrettini 6-3 6-2 6-7 7-5 in their French Open quarterfinal clash to qualify for the semifinals, where he will take on French Open record holder Rafael Nadal who dispatched Argentina’s Diego Schwartzmann 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-0 in the quarterfinals of the competition he has won the most in the history of men’s tennis. Nadal and Djokovic will face off in what is a rematch of last year’s final for a place in this year’s final.
