Roger was undecided to play in Paris after he won a tough title in Basel and he received a rather complicated draw in France. Eventually, the Swiss sensation decided to give it a go and things are going extremely well on every aspect. In fact, Roger has reached the semifinal without spending much energy since after his “ritual” 1st round bye, the Swiss haven’t played in the 2nd round following the withdrawal of Milos Raonic. Roger spent only 73 minutes on court before beating Fabio Fognini 6-4 6-3 and 79 minutes before defeating Kei Nishikori 6-4 6-3.
Nole is on an amazing 21-matches winning streak. The Serbian sensation has won the last 3 tournaments he has played (Cincinnati, the US Open and Shanghai). In Paris, Nole has defeated Joao Sousa 7-5 6-1, Dzumhur (Damir withdrew when he was 6-1 2-1 down), and Marin Cilic 4-6 6-2 6-3.
