Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal Played An Epic Four-Hour Tennis Match During French Open 2021

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal just finished one of the wildest games of tennis ever at the 2021 French Open in Paris on Friday night (June 11).

The two tennis stars went head to head for a spot in the single finals, which kick off tomorrow.

During their four set match, Novak bested Rafael 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-4), and then 6-2.

The third match between Novak and Rafael lasted for an amazing 97 minutes, and the total time they were on the court added up to four hours and 11 minutes.

“Just one of these nights and matches that you will remember forever,” Novak shared after the match with press.

He added, “Definitely the best match that I was part of ever in Roland Garros, for me, and (one of the) top three matches that I ever played in my entire career — considering quality of tennis, playing my biggest rival on the court where he has had so much success and has been the dominant force in the last 15-plus years. And the atmosphere, which was completely electric.”

Novak will go on to play Stefanos Tsitsipas in the finals.
