Sighted as one of the greatest rivalries yet again it will be Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray in the first semi final clash. The comparisons have already begun between the two as to who will get the better of who in a neck-neck match. Both had their share of ups and downs in the Rolland Garros grand slam 2014 and most importantly both are coming to the semi final after a rough quarter final match against David Ferrer and Gael Monfils respectively. Both Nadal and Murray dropped sets each with Nadal dropping 1 set and Murray 2.
Both had almost similar conditions to play under. While Nadal had to wait for the rain to stop, Murray continued in the darkness. It almost seemed that the match between Nadal and Ferrer would continue the next day and so did the match between Murray and Monfils. But both were in a hurry to finish off the match. It is yet another achievement for both the players to reach the semi final of the French Open.
It will be really tough for Murray to knock down Nadal as Nadal’s record in French Open reads as 64-1 losing to Robin Sorderling once. Murray however has a lot of expectations from himself and feels that it is a long tournament for him which has an underlying meaning that he wants to win the French Open title but the rock solid and only obstacle that is hinging between the two is Novak Djokovic whom no one can sideline. It is obvious that Nadal has much more experience of being in a grand slam final than Murray so he definitely has a slight edge over Murray. Nadal has beaten Murray in three semi finals of grand slam. A tough duel for the two is predicted.
