The quarter-finals of the 2022 French Open will see an absolute blockbuster of a match between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal on Tuesday. The two have faced each other 58 times in their careers with the Serbian marginally ahead with 30 wins. Djokovic is the strong favourite to win the match but one can never really count Nadal out, especially when it is on clay. The Spaniard won a four-hour long match against Felix Auger-Aliassime in the fourth round while the reigning Roland Garros champion Djokovic beat Diego Schwartzman. Djokovic and Nadal met in the semi-final of the competition last year, which saw the Serb emerge victorious after an epic battle.
Rafael Nadal won a thrilling Roland Garros match on Sunday, surviving a significant scare from Felix Auger-Aliassime to set up a confrontation with World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals. The Spaniard weathered an onslaught from the Canadian to win 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 and improve to 109-3 in the clay-court major in front of a raucous crowd on Court Philippe Chatrier. For the 11th time in his career, Nadal lost the first set in a match at Roland Garros. The 13-time champion, however, maintained his cool and displayed his winning mindset to progress after four hours and 23 minutes on a court where he has enjoyed so much success.
At Roland Garros, Novak Djokovic continues to win in straight sets. On Sunday afternoon, the top seed defeated Diego Schwartzman in the fourth round of the clay-court Grand Slam in Paris. In a 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 triumph, the World No. 1 saved seven break points while converting six of his own to set up a quarter-final meeting with 13-time champion Rafael Nadal in the French capital. Djokovic is currently 16-0 in fourth-round matches at the clay-court Grand Slam, and he is on his way to a 13th consecutive quarter-final appearance in Paris.
Spanish tennis legend Rafael Nadal has a kind of control on clay others only dream of. His balance, speed, shot-making and aggression on the surface are perfectly in sync with each other. At the height of his powers, the Spaniard was, quite simply, unplayable on clay. So it is not surprise that it is Nadal who has more Roland Garros titles than anyone, with a whopping 13. France’s Max Decugis sits in second place with eight. The Spaniards exploits on clay have wowed the world over and over again, which is why he has earned the nickname ‘King of Clay’.
