Djokovic and Nadal could meet in French Open semifinals
PARIS (AP) Novak Djokovic could face nine-time champion Rafael Nadal in the French Open semifinals in his quest to complete a career Grand Slam.
The top-ranked Serb, who will face Lu Yen-hsun in the first round, was put in the same side of the draw as Nadal. Djokovic beat Nadal in the quarterfinals last year, the Spaniard's second loss at Roland Garros.
Defending champion Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray could meet in the other semifinal match.
Djokovic has lost in the final in three of the last four years on the Parisian red clay. Winning the French Open would give him four consecutive major championships, something no man has achieved since Rod Laver won a true Grand Slam in 1969.
