Del Potro powers past Cilic to set up Rafa clash

Rafael Nadal GETTYRafael Nadal's clash was heavily interrupted by rain and eventually delayed for the day

Nadal is only the second man after Roger Federer to reach 11 finals at the same Grand Slam.

"Totally different guy yesterday", Schwartzman said.

Del Potro would recover to win the match, 7-6 (5), 5-7, 6-3, 7-5.

The other men's semi-final is No. 7 Dominic Thiem of Austria against 72nd-ranked Marco Cecchinato of Italy, who never won a Grand Slam match until last week and was cleared of a match-fixing charge on a technicality in 2016.

After del Potro served out his victory at love to get to his first semi-final at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament since 2009, he sat in his changeover seat, chest heaving. That said, Thiem has already been at a high level for a long time and he'll be used to this situation. I don't have any words. "It's so good for me, for my team, for my family".

"Everybody knows that I was close to quitting this sport two years ago, but then I, for one reason, I never give up", said Del Potro. Nadal had to work in his quarterfinal, as he was broken five times and hit 46 unforced errors.

"It is going to be tough one but I'm going to fight".

Nadal, dubbed the "King of Clay" for his domination on the red dirt, had his back against the wall at 3-2 down in the second set Wednesday before the match was halted for rain.

Nadal defeated Diego Schwartzman for the opportunity to face off against Juan Martin del Potro, who beat Marin Cilic on Thursday.

The Argentinian had forced six break points during the first set but each time Nadal fended them off. Nadal had not had a sniff on Del Potro's serve until, at 5-4, two swishes of his forehand forced two set points, the second of which he converted when Del Potro netted. However, I said that I'd be shocked if Cecchinato defeated Djokovic, and he managed that feat, so the Italian clay-courter can not be completely written off in advance.

That was part of a 15-minute roll of three consecutive games for Nadal, a wave during which he collected 13 of 15 points to close in on that set.

The delay enabled Nadal to regroup and he turned the deficit into a 5-3 lead before a second stoppage ended play for the day. "And in the end, I got it, and now I'm having a great present, looking forward for the future".

I'm sticking to my guns in saying the world's second-best clay courter is a 36-year-old Swiss who opted not to play in this event, but Thiem's run to the final has cemented his status as the second-best clay court player who competed here.
