For 34-year old Nadal, it was a 99th win at Roland Garros since his 2005 debut

Twelve-time champion Rafael Nadal reached his 13th French Open final Friday with a 6-3, 6-3, 7-6 (7/0) win over Argentina's Diego Schwartzman, setting up a potential blockbuster title clash against Novak Djokovic.

For 34-year old Nadal, it was a 99th win at Roland Garros since his 2005 debut and put him just one victory away from equalling Roger Federer's all-time record of 20 Grand Slam titles.

He is also into his 28th final at the majors.

Djokovic, the 2016 champion in Paris and chasing an 18th Grand Slam title, takes on Greek fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the second semi-final.

The world No 1 has his own date with destiny should he make Sunday's final as he bids to become the first man in half a century to win all four Slams twice.
