French Open 2010 Semifinal: Rafael Nadal vs. Jurgen Melzer Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Nadal vs. Melzer Live Stream: Four-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal takes on 22nd seed Jurgen Melzer of Austria this afternoon at Court Philippe Chatrier. Nadal, who celebrated his 24th birthday on Thursday, is now the favorite to win the title after the Spaniard defeated compatriot Nicolas Almagro in straight sets in the quarterfinals.
Nadal is trying to become the second man with five Roland Garros crowns. And victory in Sunday’s final would also push Roger Federer off top spot to make ‘The Man from Majorca’ the new world No 1. Nadal accepts the absence of the Swiss Maestro, who was beaten by fifth seed Robin Soderling, makes his task easier in reclaiming the title.
Melzer, the first Austrian man since Thomas Muster to reach the last four of a major tournament, earned a five-set win over Novak Djokovic in the quarters, coming from two sets behind to end the Serbian’s Roland Garros hopes after more than four hours of play.
The 29-year-old from Vienna has never before got past the third round at any Grand Slam tournament in 31 previous attempts, and he called that Djokovic win the match of his life
UPDATE: Nadal will have a chance to avenge his lone French Open defeat when he takes on Robin Soderling in the final at Roland Garros on Sunday. The Spaniard defeated Melzer, 6-2, 6-3, 7-6.
