French Open tennis - Brilliant Rafael Nadal battles past Diego Schwartzman to reach semis at Roland Garros
Third seed and 13-time champion at Roland Garros, Rafael Nadal, reeled off nine games in succession to overcome Diego Schwartzman in quite brilliant fashion on Court Philippe Chatrier. The Argentine roared back in the second set to end Nadal's streak of sets on the bounce in Paris, but he could never quite keep his opponent in his sights as the Spaniard won through 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-0.
Highlights: Nadal downs Schwartzman to reach semis for 14th time
There were any number of remarkable points as the pair traded stunning efforts from the back of the court, but for all Schwartzman's efforts, Nadal always seemed to have another gear and he demonstrated this very clearly in the fourth set.
