Dominic Thiem faces Marco Cecchinato in the first semi-final, followed by the clash between champion Rafael Nadal and fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro.
Being a 10-times champion did not prevent Rafael Nadal from feeling nervous against Argentine Diego Schwartzman in their French Open quarter-final, with the Spaniard admitting that he can at times struggle to cope with his own expectations.

Del Potro said resuming a match at 5-5 in a tiebreak with his serve to come had been a odd situation but his aim was true and he moved 6-5 ahead before his cagey backhand slice induced a poor forehand error by Cilic.
Del Potro has looked one of the biggest threats to Nadal's domination this year, with his pulverizing forehand dismantling everyone in his path on the Parisian clay. "And in my opinion, the match changed", Nadal said.
"I played more aggressive. Was a match that maybe is a key match", the 16-times Grand Slam champion said.
"I thought that after nine years I [would] play [someone] different, not Rafa or Roger", del Potro said, with a smile.
The top seed would have been delighted to return in his favoured hot conditions after the gloom of the night before, and a hasty end looked in sight when Nadal opened up a 4-1 third-set lead with a double break courtesy of a booming forehand followed by the cutest of drop shots. Their match was also initially suspended by rain headed for a tiebreaker at 6-6 in the first set.
When they returned to the court, Nadal used a burst of three straight games - and 13 of 15 points - to close in on taking the second set.
