Del Potro has won six of his last seven matches on clay court. The most recent match was in the 2017 US Open, a match Nadal won in four sets.

Sharapova didn't need to play a point in the fourth round, because Serena Williams pulled out of their much-anticipated match with an injured chest muscle.

The 37-set run was Nadal's longest at the French Open, where the record of 41 was established by Bjorn Borg from 1978-81.

Del Potro's win over Cilic on Thursday was an emotional one for the sixth-ranked 29-year-old, who will return to the top four of the ATP rankings for the first time since February 2014 on Monday.

Nadal giving up a 6.5 game head start is [1.74] on the Exchange, and I'd expect this to rise by several ticks as the market forms in the run-up to the match, and I'm quite happy to look at this as a more viable proposition.

After the first delay against Schwartzman, a set and a break down, he resumed to reel off three games in a row to put himself in control of the second.

When the players came back on for half an hour Nadal had rediscovered his serve and found his forehand, until at 5-3 30-15 the heavens opened again.

The world number one player beat 11th-seed Diego Schwartzman 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 to reach the semifinals at Roland Garros.
