The GIST: Tennis’ second Grand Slam of the year is nearing its dramatic conclusion, with the men’s semis set to begin shortly and an epic women’s final on deck tomorrow. Magnifique.

Men’s: Today’s 8:45 a.m. ET match is a clash of two titans, with 13-time French Open winner No. 5 Rafael Nadal squaring off against No. 3 Alexander Zverev, who’s competing in his second straight Roland-Garros semifinal. Can the wedgie-picker Nadal advance for a shot at a record-extending 22nd men’s Grand Slam title?

  • Whoever emerges victorious will face the winner of today’s 11:30 a.m. ET battle between No. 8 Casper Ruud and No. 20 Marin Čilić. Nothing like brunch and a break point.

Women’s: There’s a whole lot of history on the line for tomorrow’s 9 a.m. ET women’s final between No. 1 Iga Świątek and No. 18 Coco Gauff. In yesterday’s semis, Świątek dispatched No. 20 Daria Kasatkina in straight sets to claim her 34th consecutive match.

  • As for Gauff, the 18-year-old American dominated Martina Trevisan to reach her first career Grand Slam final.
  • With a victory, not only will Świątek hoist her second French Open trophy, she’ll also join Venus Williams for the longest winning streak on the WTA tour in the 21st century. If Gauff wins, she can call herself a Grand Slam champion. Can it end in a tie, please?
