Nadal's personal best of consecutive sets won is 38, from 2016-18 at Roland Garros. The men’s Grand Slam record is held by Bjorn Borg, with 41 consecutive sets won at the French Open.

Nadal managed to get hold of the proceedings and enter the last four. World No 1 Novak Djokovic also endured a nervy night before closing off the match against No 9 Matteo Berrettini 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-5, on Wednesday night.

Up against each other both tennis stalwarts have much to lose in their semi-finals clash. Nadal is chasing a record 14th French Open title and is 105-2 in the clay-court tournament.

"We know each other well," the third-seeded Nadal said,  "Everybody knows that in these kind of matches, anything can happen."

"I'm confident. I believe I can win," Djokovic said.
