French Open 2019: Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies win doubles

Novak Djokovic of Serbia plays a forehand during his mens singles semi-final match against Dominic Thiem of Austria during Day fourteen of the 2019 French Open at Roland Garros

No. 4-seeded Dominic Thiem advanced to the French Open's final round with a nail-biting 6-2, 3-6, 7-5, 5-7, 7-5 victory over top-seeded Novak Djokovic on Saturday. "That's all I can tell you".

China's Duan Yingying and Zheng Saisai will play second seeds Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic in the women's doubles final on Sunday. Nadal got 82 percent of his first serves in play and saved two of his four break points.

It was 2009 champion Federer's first French Open campaign since 2015, after skipping the clay-court season for two years in order to be better prepared for Wimbledon.

On the resumption Saturday, Djokovic retrieved the break in the seventh game but slipped behind again in the match when Thiem converted a fourth set point.

The semifinal between Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem has resumed after a rain delay of about an hour.

Nadal made only 19 unforced errors, crushing 33 winners as Federer struck 25, although that amount could easily have been doubled against any opponent other than the 11-time champion. The world No. 1 rallied to even the fifth set at 5 before ultimately losing the match, snapping Djokovic's streak of 26 consecutive major match wins. However, the Austrian won their most recent meeting on clay in the semi-finals in Barcelona in April in straight sets.

"[Friday] was one of the worst conditions I have ever been part of".

Putin: Russia not to build military base in Venezuela
Putin said he was puzzled by the absence of a global discussion. "There will be no instruments left to curb the arms race". The warming to China comes as Russian Federation faces trade sanctions and a deepening confrontation with the West.

That would mean he will have played four days in succession after his quarter-final against Karen Khachanov was put back a day to Thursday after a washout on Wednesday. On that occasion the Spaniard edged a tight first set to win through in straight sets for an 11th Roland Garros title and a 17th major overall.

"I think it's really important that I go into the match with the belief to win", he said.

But Thiem more than deserves to be facing Nadal again in Paris, and for the third time in a major in the a year ago.

He added: "Every single time to beat one of them it's fantastic, they've won more than 50 grand slams". Having only dropped one set against Belgian David Goffin in the third round, he has also spent roughly two hours less on court compared to Thiem. "And they said there is no chance", said the Chilean.

"When the supervisor came on the court, he said as long as there are no flying objects coming on to the court, we're good", fumed Djokovic.

"I guess they know tennis better".
