Ten-time champion Rafael Nadal reached his 11th French Open final on Friday when he demolished Juan Martin del Potro in straight sets on Friday‚ setting up a title showdown with Dominic Thiem‚ the only man to defeat him on clay in the last two years.
"If I'd won the second set I think it is totally different, the third set", he said.
Throw in three titles at the U.S. Open, two at Wimbledon and one at the Australian Open, and Nadal is up to 17 majors, second among men only to Roger Federer's 20. "That's the only way for me to approach the tough moments".
Nadal simply had too much power and consistency for Argentina's fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro in the match that followed.
He probably felt as though he had been, as Nadal completed a devastating 6-4 6-1 6-2 victory.
Truth is, there were not many the rest of the way, as Nadal finished with 35 winners and just 19 unforced errors.
Nadal tightened his grip, going to 5-1 on another double break in the third set and sealed the match when Del Potro hit a backhand long.World 72 Cecchinato had knocked out three seeded players to reach the semi-finals, including 12-time major victor Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals.But Thiem, 24, was too strong and now believes he has a particularly powerful weapon on his side for the final - breakfast.
At No. 72, Cecchinato was the lowest-ranked men's semifinalist at the French Open since 1999.
By then, Nadal was finding his spots. "Today was unbelievable for me, with all of Philippe-Chatrier Court full".
But Thiem showed resilience in getting two break points on Nadal's serve.
