The first semi-final match later today is the exciting match between Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem. If there is a player who is going to spoil Nadal's run to a tenth French Open title, it is Dominic, and it would be very interesting how Thiem dismantles Rafa in a court where he is considered king.
Well, that was the Rafa of the old and the latest Rafa has some chinks in his armor. One advantage he has though is that he is well-rested because of the retirement of Carreno Busta in their match earlier.
However, Thiem is also riding on a high after a three-set dismantling of last year's champion Novak Djokovic. So I just hope both players bring their A-game tomorrow as the future of tennis meets his clay court Majesty.
