The French Open field will be down to just two after Friday’s matches, as the remaining four players take the court in the semifinals. Novak Djokovic, Dominic Thiem, Andy Murray and defending champion Stan Wawrinka are looking to reach the finals at Roland Garros.
Djokovic and Thiem are on the court first with the tentative start time of 9 a.m. ET. Djokovic is looking to reach the French Open finals for a fourth time in five years, though he’s still never won the title at Roland Garros. Thiem, the No.13 seed, is in a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time, and he had previously never been beyond the second round of the French Open.
Wawrinka faces Murray following Djokovic vs. Thiem, potentially setting up a rematch from last year’s final. Wawrinka won his first ever championship at Roland Garros, defeating Djokovic in the final. Murray defeated Djokovic in the final at Rome last month, though Djokovic has two wins over Murray in tournament finals in 2016.
Play began at 7 a.m. ET, first featuring the women's semifinals, with the men's semifinals to come on Philippe-Chatrier Court and Suzanne-Lenglen Court afterward. Serena Williams advanced to the final with a victory over Kiki Bertens.
American television coverage of the day began at 7 a.m. ET on the Tennis Channel. NBC picks up semifinal coverage after the "Today" show ends at 11 a.m. Live online streaming is available at NBC Sports Live Extra and TennisChannel.com.
