    Another chapter will tonight be written in one of the greatest rivalries in tennis history


    20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer takes on Rafael Nadal, who's won the French Open on 11 occasions, in the first men's semi final at Roland Garros.

    The pair have met 15 times on clay, with the Nadal holding a 13-2 advantage.

    And doesn't Federer know it.

    He says if you want to achieve something on clay, it means going through Nadal.

    Play's scheduled to begin at 10:50pm, while the other men's semi is between world number on Novak Djokovic and fourth seed Dominic Thiem .

    In the women's semis, Aussie Ash Barty takes on 17-year old American Amanda Anisimova , while Brit Johanna Konta faces Czech Marketa Vondrousova .

    TENNIS WITH CROWN FORKLIFTS. WHEN IT COMES TO FORKLIFTS, THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A CROWN.
