French Open day 12 recap: Djokovic, Anisimova and...Sharapova

You could not ask for better than that: Novak Djokovic, Dominic Thiem, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are in the semifinals of the Roland Garros 2019. Paris ignites; the best of the men's singles are among the last four.

Old dogs new tricks, but in women's singles, the opposite happens. The millennial Amanda Anisimova is in the semifinals, along with Ashleigh Barty, Johanna Konta and Marketa Vondrousova. If in the men's singles the last four players have at least played a final in Paris, in the women's singles the remaining four play for the first time a semifinal in the second seasonal Slam.

Guy Forget, director of the Roland Garros, said that there are several possibilities for the men's final to be played on Monday instead of Sunday, due to rain. The rain that in the previous days has created problems for the Parisian tournament.

Will everything go according to the schedule or will there be other surprises? Maria Sharapova is training on the grass courts of the Santa Ponça Country Club with the aim of overcoming the injury and playing the Mallorca Open, which takes place from 17 to 23 June 2019.

Should she make it, we could finally see her again at Wimbledon. "I think we would all be thrilled to see him come back to the Tour" said Roger Federer about Andy Murray's come back. Nadal also gave the Scot a welcome back: "I always thought he would find a way to try to come back because he is still young and still has a lot to give to the sport".

Tomorrow the semi-finals begin. The sports world is awaiting the eagerly awaited challenge between Federer and Nadal. Is everyone ready?
