Alcott Reaches Another Grand Slam Decider

Friday, October 9th, 2020

Aussie Dylan Alcott has moved through to the quad singles French Open final, with a straight sets win over Dutchman Sam Schroder.

The wheelchair tennis champion will now face British rival Andy Lapthorne in the decider.

The match will see the Australian attempt to claim his 11th grand slam title.

Tonight, the first men’s singles semi-final will be held, between Rafael Nadal and Diego Schwartzman.

Nadal says he’ll have to be at his best to overcome the world number 14.

‘I’m gonna try to go on court and play my best, try to play my game, play aggressive, try to do something a little bit different than what I did in Rome,” he says.

In the women’s draw, Australian Open winner Sofia Kenin will play Polish teen Iga Świątek in the decider.

To advance to the decider Kenin had a straight-sets win over Petra Kvitová while Świątek breezed past Argentine qualifier Nadia Podoroska.
