After a two-day break, Alexander Zverev and Rafael Nadal are really hot for tennis again. The semi-finals this Friday are about getting into the final of the French Open. The 13-time Paris winner Nadal is the clear favorite in the game. As always when he goes to the Philippe Chatrier court at the Stade Roland Garros. But there are also things that the German Olympic champion can claim for himself.
That speaks for Alexander Zverev
The outsider role: Before the tournament, no one had Zverev on the bill. Everyone was just talking about Novak Djokovic, Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz. Zverev took advantage of this and came up trumps against Alcaraz. He can also play freely against Nadal.
Confidence: The win against Alcaraz was important for Zverev. For the first time he was able to defeat a top ten player in a Grand Slam tournament. The Olympic champion will now take to the pitch against Nadal with a broad chest. Knowing how difficult the task is.
Nadal’s foot: When Nadal left the Jean Bouin training ground on Thursday, he was limping. The pain in his foot is chronic. And in Paris the Mallorquin has already completed two marathon matches this year.
That speaks for Rafael Nadal
The place: In no other place in the world does Nadal feel as comfortable as on the Court Philippe Chatrier. Here he has lifted the trophy an unbelievable 13 times, here he has experienced the best moments of his career.
The experience: For Zverev, after losing the US Open final in 2020, it would only be the second final in a Grand Slam tournament. Nadal has won 13 times in Paris alone and is a record champion with 21 titles.
The crowd: The crowds in Paris love Nadal. There is a very special relationship between the Spaniard and French tennis fans. And on Friday it’s Nadal’s birthday too. The spectators want to whip him into the final.
Ex-FC Bayern President Uli Hoeneß (70) insists on contract fulfillment by Robert Lewandowski (33). He is even calm about legal tricks.
Meanwhile, there is no end in sight to the tug-of-war between top striker Robert Lewandowski and FC Bayern Munich. Now teammate Thomas Müller is clearly positioning himself for a change of the world footballer.
Serge Gnabry is currently preparing for the Nations League games with the German national team. In the back of my mind, however, there are still thoughts about the faltering contract talks at FC Bayern. After Robert Lewandowski, Gnabry is now also indicating what his bosses are currently missing.
