A titanic showdown with Novak Djokovic in the last eight forced the Spaniard into one of his greatest-ever performances at Rolland Garros, from a very long highlights reel.
No3 seed Zverev put in his own rather decent display to down Carlos Alcaraz in his own gruelling quarter-final battle.
With Casper Ruud and Marin Cilic vying for the other spot in the final after this game, whoever of Nadal and Zverev comes through will surely be the favourite for the crown.
