Novak Djokovic tops Rafael Nadal to reach French Open final

It yet another display of tremendous tennis between the rivals, Novak Djokovic outlasted Rafael Nadal on Friday to advance to the final of the French Open.

The top-seeded Djokovic won 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-2. He will next face Stefanos Tsitsipas, who beat Alexander Zverev in five sets earlier Friday, in the final of the Grand Slam event on Sunday.

After trailing 0-2 in the fourth set, Djokovic rattled off six consecutive games to halt Nadal's quest for a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title.

Nadal, a 14-time winner of the French Open who turned 35 last week, fell to 105-3 in his career at Roland Garros -- with two of those losses now at the hands of Djokovic.
