The Russian, who beat Viktoria Kudermetova in straight sets to cruise into her first ever Grand Slam semi-final on Wednesday, has not dropped a single set so far in the tournament. "French fries make a lot of difference, I must say, and here they are good in France," the Russian said. But time might be running out for the Spaniard, who has been suffering from a chronic foot injury that had put his participation in the claycourt major in doubt. "If you play good, you have to treat yourself. "I have an unbelievable feeling. Even if you are not playing good it's not bad to treat yourself, because you are pushing and you are trying. I think I'm gonna be playing this tournament because we are doing the things to be ready to play this tournament, but I don't know what's gonna happen after here," Nadal told a news conference after his 6-2 4-6 6-2 7-6(4) win against world number one Djokovic." Kasatkina has also rewarded herself with a semi-final against top seed and world number Iga Swiatek of Poland who eased past American Jessica Pegula 6-3 6-2.

"It has to be balance in everything and it's not easy to find it, but with years and experience it's coming together," Kasatkina said. "I have what I have there in the foot, so if we are not able to find an improvement or a small solution on that, then it's becoming super difficult for me, no. I told myself to keep at it and play my plan. Source: Reuters .
