Rafael Nadal vs Diego Schwartzman live stream
Nadal and Schwartzman is the first semi on Court Philippe Chatrier today and the start time is set for 2.50pm local time / 1.50pm BST. If you’re based in the UK, the great news is that you can watch the match for free on ITV4 and the ITV website – and you can watch if you’re abroad with a VPN. We explain how below.
This is Rafael Nadal’s competition, and in typical fashion he’s yet to lose a set in Paris. However, he suffered his first real scare in the quarter-finals, getting broken twice by young Jannik Sinner, but holding his nerve to beat the Italian in straight sets.
The match ended just before 1.30am local time, making it the latest ever finish at Roland Garros, and Schwartzman and Dominic Thiem were to blame. Not that any viewers were complaining.
They played out a five-set thriller on Court Philippe Chatrier, with the match constantly swinging one way, then the other. Schwartzman took the first set but looked like spent force as he saw the the second and third go to US Open champion Thiem, and the fourth appeared to be slipping away as he went from 5-3 up to two points away from elimination.
But the 12th seed dug deep – five hours and eight minutes deep – and turned it around to reach the first Grand Slam semi-final of his career. His reward for beating the No. 3 seed? A date with the No. 2 seed, who’s looking for his 13th French Open championship.
Can Schwartzman pull off a repeat of his Italian Open heroics, where he broke Nadal’s serve five times? If you’re even a casual tennis fan, you won’t want to miss a Nadal vs Schwartzman live stream.
