    OUR man Rob Maul was present for a Nadal masterclass.

    Read his full report from the dramatic semi-final clash in Paris HERE.

    “The Swiss superstar could not cope with the stinging serves to his backhand and was pummelled into submission.

    “Federer, 37, is playing at the French Open for the first time since 2015 and he was serenaded with chants of ‘Roger, Roger’ in the closing points on potentially his final appearance here.”

    IT didn't quite materialise into the match we all hoped.

    The turning point was early in the second set, where Federer found himself a break up and 30-0 on serve.

    But somehow he lost that service game, prompting Nadal to come storming back and eventually run out a comfortable straight-sets winner in their 39th meeting.
