Del Potro: Nothing to lose against Nadal

Nadal walks off court for the second time due to rain in Paris

Nadal walks off court for the second time due to rain in Paris

Nadal's match against the fifth-seeded del Potro on Friday will mark his third consecutive day of competition, though the 10-time Roland Garros champion isn't fazed by the extra work.

Nadal fought off four break points in the decisive eighth game of the third set and added four more break points saved on his way to victory in the fourth set.

To suggest Nadal is in cahoots with the weatherman would be ridiculous, but he's certainly making the most of breaks in play due to the conditions.

Garbine Muguruza overwhelmed Maria Sharapova 6-2, 6-1 in a matchup of past French Open champions to reach the semifinals.

The 29-year-old was in tears after the win.

"After the stop for rain I played more aggressively and I m very happy to be back in the semi-finals here".

He briefly lost his focus toward the end of the second set when he appeared to be distracted by a spectator just before hitting a double-fault to drop his serve and give Cilic a 5-4 lead.

Nadal returned to the court midway through serving to level the match after bad weather ended play early on Wednesday evening.

"I would sign with blood to win against Thiem and reach the final even if I were to lose against Nadal".

Canada to impose tariff 'countermeasures' on US
According to a Reuters report , Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso called the us tariff actions "deeply deplorable". Goods affected will include some American steel, as well as consumer products such as yoghurt, whiskey and coffee.

Croatian Cilic played an bad game when serving for the set, making four unforced errors, but he was gifted another chance to serve for the set after breaking Del Potro again and at the second time of asking he levelled the match.

"I don't have any obligation to win, first thing".

"I don't know if I will win, but I will take a big love from you and that's the most important for me", he said.

He buckled at 5-5 though and sent a backhand long on break point, leaving Del Potro to serve for the match, which he did easily as Cilic sent three more backhands out.

"He was playing great, and I was playing too defensive. And, in my opinion, the match changed". So the rain was nothing good for me yesterday.' At some point in time, did you ever think that you could beat Rafa in Paris? I was close to quit this sport.

In the other women's quarterfinal, No. 1 Simona Halep takes on former No. 1 Angelique Kerber in a rematch of their epic Australian Open semifinal in January.

"I played again one of my best matches on clay", Halep said after coming back from a break down in the second set.

Sloane Stephens' clash with Madison Keys represented a rematch of the 2017 US Open final, which Stephens won.

Halep looks like the runaway favourite for Saturday's clash, although 2017 U.S. Open victor Stephens holds the advantage of having won a major and can clinch a second Grand Slam crown in nine months if she upsets the odds in Paris. I am so proud to be playing tennis.
