Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev battled for two straight sets in their French Open semifinals game today, before a freak ankle injury forced Zverev to withdraw from the contest. This will send Nadal to his 18th total French Open finals, and he will be vying for his 14th championship. If you think Nadal has what it takes, you can bet on the French Open through any of these New Jersey Online Casinos.

Nadal was able to grab the first set 7-6, and the second set was all tied up 6-6 before Zverev fell with his injury. Nadal will now go on to face the winner of the second semi-final match between #8 ranked Casper Ruud and #20 ranked Marin Cilic.

Having played such a wonderful tournament, Zverev will surely be upset he wasn’t able to see it out to the end. He managed to send Carlos Alcaraz home in the round prior, and he is someone who experts think will be the next superstar. Hopefully, this ankle injury isn’t too serious and he is able to participate in Wimbledon, which is set to start on June 27.
