Action at Roland-Garros will begin at the Phillipe-Chatrier Court at 2.50 pm for these men’s singles semifinals, as the fifth seeded Tsitsipas looks to make it to his first ever major final. He will be up against Germany’s Alexander Zverev who overcame a slow start to the tournament to reach this semifinal.
While this is a semifinal to watch on its own, what follows this will be where all eyes will be. The 13-time champion Nadal faces what can well be described as a final before the final as he faces the world number one Djokovic.

French Open 2021 Men’s Semifinals Predictions
How will the 2021 French Open men’s singles semifinals go? Below are our predictions and tips for the same.
Stefanos Tsitsipas v Alexander Zverev
While we think Tsitsipas is a favourite here for the manner in which he has demolished all his opponents, Zverev has found his rhythm in more recent times. That being said, Zverev has a very poor record against top-10 players at Grand Slams, let alone against top-5 and we will be backing Tsitsipas to take home this encounter.
Rafael Nadal v Novak Djokovic
In what is one of the biggest rivalries in tennis today, Nadal will not just be looking to clinch another spot in the final at Roland-Garros but also level their head to head at 29-29.
The last time around they faced off was in the French Open final last year and Nadal had absolutely dismantled Djokovic there in straight sets; this time around it might not be that easy and yet we believe it’s difficult to look beyond Nadal to win this (4/11 with SpreadEx).
What we are also looking at this time around is for Djokovic to grab at least one set, with Nadal coming through to win. Nadal to win and both players to win a set, which is at 7/5 with bet365 .
