French Open - 'You can't play better than this' - Andy Murray hails 'perfect' Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic
World number one Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal put on a masterclass at Roland Garros in their semi-final as they met for the second consecutive year. Djokovic lost to the 13-time champion in Paris last year and the pair played some absurdly good shots during their huge French Open clash - so much so, Andy Murray was among those lauding the match.
'Where did that come from?' - Djokovic laughs at Nadal brilliance with mad shot
"It has to be that good at the moment!" exclaimed Eurosport's Simon Reed on commentary as Nadal left Djokovic laughing with a drop shot played while running backwards and to the side in a desperate reaction.
"Where did that come from?" wondered Miles Maclagan, also on commentary.
"You see how sweetly the return was struck that it forced Nadal into that sort of shot, but the hands are just so good, the awareness of where the racket face is."
'Lights out play!' - Nadal with 'something special' against Djokovic
Djokovic, 34, has won the French Open once, in 2016, compared to Nadal's 13 titles at Roland Garros but both men are in the hunt to end their careers with the most Grand Slam titles to their names.
