Thiem stands between Nadal and his 11th French Open title

The Latest Del Potro confronts French Open fan

Nadal bulldozed Argentine fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro 6-4 6-1 6-2 to cruise into his 11th Roland Garros decider and his 24th grand slam final overall.

I never dreamed in 2005 when I played my first final here that I would be in another one."Thiem is the only man to beat Nadal on clay in the last two seasons - in Madrid this year and Rome in 2017".

The Sicilian journeyman usually earns a living by playing in second-tier tournaments but over the past two weeks, the world number 72 looked like he belonged on the big stage as he knocked out seeds Pablo Carreno Busta, David Goffin and Novak Djokovic to reach the last four at Roland Garros. "I'm so happy to be in the final again", said Nadal afterward.

Robin Soderling, who famously inflicted Nadal's first defeat at the French Open in 2009, insists Thiem has to take the initiative from the start.

Nadal broke in the lone game he had an opportunity to wrap up the set. "But I will not give (it to) him, '" Nadal said.

"I was not able to move the hand, the finger", Nadal said.

Marco Cecchinato of Italy was defeated by Dominic Thiem of Austria during day thirteen of the 2018 French Open.

Seventh seed Thiem, who will be playing in his first grand slam final, is regarded as second only to Nadal on clay - albeit probably quite a distant second.

There was a sense of inevitability when Del Potro served at 4-5 and Nadal turned the screws to grab two set points at 15-40. Nadal's introduction included a year-by-year accounting of every time he'd already won the French Open. The Spanish ace dropped the first set and was down 3-2 in the second before a rain break swung the momentum in his favour. After a tough first set, Nadal jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the second set and rolled, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2. He was serving big and hitting very strong the first shots.

On the resumption of play, Nadal held his two service points to take the second set 6-3.

By then, Nadal was finding his spots.
