Novak Djokovic set up
a 58th meeting with Rafael Nadal on Wednesday when he reached his 40th Grand
Slam semi-final at the French Open.

World number one Djokovic defeated Italy’s Matteo Berrettini
6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (5/7), 7-5 to book his place in the last four in Paris for the
11th time.

The match was being held up by 5,000 fans needing to be evacuated to conform with a Covid-19 curfew.

Earlier, Nadal, the 13-time champion, beat Argentina’s Diego
Schwartzman 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-0 to make the semi-finals for the 14th time.

With Djokovic’s match extending beyond the national 11pm
curfew, play was halted for around 20 minutes at 3-2 in the fourth set so that
5,000 fans could be funnelled out of Court Philippe Chatrier.
