2017 Roland Garros SF Rafael Nadal bt. Dominic Thiem 6/3 6/4 6/0
Next opponent - Stan Wawrinka
Rafael Nadal will attempt to win his record 10th Roland Garros title and his third “La Décima” of the season.
“I started a little bit more nervous today than normal, but then I played well, I think,” Nadal said. “It's true that Dominic played with more mistakes than usual, probably".
“At the same time it was windy out there, and he didn't play in the centre court before that match. Probably that was not helping him. In general, to be in the final again here probably the most important event in my career means a lot to me, no? I’m just very, very happy for everything, and I’m going to try my best on Sunday.”
“He was a little bit unlucky, in my opinion," said Nadal, having saved two break points in the second game of the set. "He didn't convert the chances, and that changed completely the match. These kind of matches, you don't get that opportunities, then you are in trouble, no? He had opportunities in the first, opportunities at the beginning of the second, and then I think I played well, no? I played a solid match and was tougher for him.”
