Carlos Alcaraz vs Jannik Sinner start time: When is French Open semi-final?

Carlos Alcaraz faces rival Jannik Sinner for a place in the French Open final. in a blockbuster battle of the sport’s young stars.

The pair have not met at a grand slam since their five-set epic at the US Open two years ago, and have both gone on to win major titles.

Alcaraz, 21, has won the US Open and Wimbledon, while Sinner, 22, lifted his first grand slam at the Australian Open this season and will become the new men’s World No 1 on Monday.

The head-to-head stands as four wins each, with Alcaraz winning their last meeting at Indian Wells earlier this season to snap Sinner’s 19-match win streak.

In the other last-four match, Alexander Zverev will look to end his semi-final curse against two-time French Open runner-up Casper Ruud.

Zverev, the fourth seed, has lost three French Open semi-finals in a row, including in straight sets to the Norwegian Ruud last season.
