‘King of Clay’ Wins Epic 5-Setter to Reach the French Open Men’s Final; Ferrer breaks French hearts

The seven-time champion, Rafael Nadal, beat Novak Djokovic 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7(3), 9-7 on Friday, in a match which lastest 4:37, securing his place in Sunday’s championship match at Roland Garros.  It was the much-anticipated rematch to last years’ final, and each player had much at stake.  Nadal is vying for his record 8th title at the French, while Djokovic was playing for the chance to be only the 8th player ever to hold a “career Slam.”

The Spaniard David Ferrer later defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets, 6-1, 7-6(3), 6-2, eliminating France’s hope of having one of their own in the Roland Garros men’s final.
