Rafael Nadal Advances to Men’s French Open Final After Alexander Zverev Pulls Out Due to Injury

Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal has secured a ticket to the final of this year’s French Open after his semi-final opponent, Alexander Zverev was forced to retire due to an injury.

After losing the first set 7-6 (8) in a tie break, Zverev was leading 6-5 in the second set of the semifinal match when the German twisted his ankle while reaching for a forehand shot. He fell instantly and screamed in agony as he grabbed his right ankle.

As a result of the injury, Nadal emerged victorious and continues his quest for a 14th title at Roland Garros and a record-extending 22nd grand slam title.

On Sunday he will face off against te winner of the match between Norway’s Casper Ruud and Croatia’s Marin Cilic.
