Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have reached the quarterfinals of the French Open men’s singles after winning their fourth-round match. With this, both of them will now meet in the quarter-finals. At the same time, Leyla Fernandez and Martina Trevsin have also reached the quarter-finals after winning their respective matches in the women’s singles.
Defending champion Novak Djokovic defeated Diego Schwartzman in the fourth round to reach the quarterfinals of the French Open for the 13th time in a row. In a match that lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes, he defeated Diego 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 in straight sets to reach the quarter-finals.
13-time winner Rafael Nadal defeated Canada’s Felix Auger 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 in the fourth round to reach the quarterfinals. It was not an easy victory for Nadal. He faced defeat in the first set, then he came back to win the second and third sets. At the same time, Felix also made a comeback by winning the fourth set and put the match on an exciting turn. After falling behind in the last set, Nadal turned the set in his favor and secured his place in the quarter-finals.
Fernandez defeated Anisimova 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in the fourth round to reach the quarterfinals of the French Open. Last year’s US Open runner-up Leyla has made it to the quarter-finals of the French Open for the first time. Now his next match is with Martina Trevison.
Martina Trevisan has entered the quarterfinals of the French Open for the second time. Earlier in 2020 also she was successful in making it to the top-8. Trevsin defeated Aleksandra Sasnovi 7-6 (10), 7-5 in a match that lasted 1 hour 59 minutes. This is his 9th consecutive win.
She is also the third Italian player to reach the quarter-finals twice or more at the French Open. Before this, Francesca Schiavone and Sara Irani have done this feat.
With each match that I watch, my love for the game just increases. All I dream of is to join my passion for writing with that of the game and pen down the live-action.
As a person, I am a quick learner and work well in a team for that is what wins the series.
