Novak Djokovic has moved into the final of the French Open.

In a thrilling semi-final, the Serb defeated Rafael Nadal after 4:10 hours 3: 6, 6: 3, 7: 6 (7: 4), 6: 2.

Djokovic meets Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final, who had previously thrown the German Alexander Zverev out of the tournament.

A decision off the field also made for appearance: Normally, the spectators would have had to leave the arena before the end of the game because of the Corona regulations in Paris.

There is a curfew in the French capital from 11 p.m.

But the organizers decided to the cheers of the fans not to vacate the arena.

The audience thanked it with the loud singing of the Marseillaise.
