Rafael Nadal, who has won the French Open 13 times, cannot play the quarter-final match of the Grand Slam against the world's top-ranked Player Novak Djokovic during the day on Tuesday. The organisers have decided to hold the big match at night after discussions with the broadcaster of the tournament.
The pace of the 'clay court' seems to be slowing down a bit at night, so Nadal is looking to play the match during the day. He defeated Felix Ogar Aliassime in the fourth round of five sets that lasted four-and-a-half hours on Sunday. Now they are going to have a challenge from Djokovic. This will be the record 59th match between the two players. In the French Open, Nadal has won 7 matches against Djokovic while he has lost two matches.
According to reports, Nadal, who set a record of winning 21 Grand Slams with the Australian Open in January, has won 109 matches at Roland Garros while he lost just three. This includes the defeat against Djokovic in the semi-finals last year.
