Wind, Rain & Roger; Rafa see’s it all off and will battle for No.12 on Sunday!

On Sunday Rafael Nadal will bid for his 12th Roland Garros final.

He has an unmatchable 97.87 win percentage at Roland Garros winning 92 of his 94 matches.

A 6-3 6-4 6-2 win against Roger Federer will leave to battle for another crown in Paris.

The tennis was impeccable from the Spaniard who once he got going was not going to be matched at all.

They had to battle the odd rain shower without any delays and some persistent 45mph+ winds but got through safely to the final.

The first six games were close with breaks of serve either way and adapting to the conditions especially the wind was a tough ask for both players whether they were serving into the wind or facing the wind.

From 3-3 Rafa found his grove in the first set and it was a similar story in the second.

Could things have been different?

Federer at 4-4 was up 40-0 on serve but some routinely brilliant tennis from the Spaniard winning 9 points in a row sealed the second set quite quickly despite Federer having three game points.

The domination continued and the forehands were out of this world by the 11 time champion and he pretty much strolled to the third set taking a 5-1 lead and serving it out for 6-2.
