Top seed Novak Djokovic came through a hairy quarter-final to set up a shootout with fifth seed Stefanos Tsisipas for a place in the French Open final. We’ll show you how to live stream Djokovic vs Tsitsipas for FREE at the French Open today, no matter where you are.
Novak Djokovic vs Stefanos Tsitsipas live stream
Djokovic and Tsitsipas follows Nadal vs Schwartzman on Court Philippe Chatrier today, so the start time will roughly be 6.30pm local time / 5.30pm BST. If you’re based in the UK, the great news is that you can watch the match for free on ITV4 and the ITV website – and you can watch if you’re abroad with a VPN. We explain how below.
Djokovic didn’t exactly cruise into the semi-finals. The world no. 1 played with tape down his neck and lost his first set of the tournament against Pablo Carreno Busta in the last round. He brought the physio onto court to massage his upper left arm after going behind, before composing himself to win three sets in a row.
Tsistipas’ route through the tournament has followed a very different pattern. The 22-year-old found himself on the brink of elimination in the first round but hasn’t looked back since, winning every set he’s played from that moment on. His last victory was the most impressive of the lot, a fairly straightforward takedown of 13th seed Andrey Rublev.
The Serb and the Greek have met five times before, with Djoko leading the series 3-2, and he was also triumphant on the one occasion they played each other on clay. Tsitsipas has never made it beyond a Grand Slam semi-final before but, underdog though he may be, Djokovic looked a long way from invincible last time out.
If you’re even a casual tennis fan, you won’t want to miss a Djokovic vs Tsitsipas live stream to find out who will play the indomitable Rafa Nadal this Sunday in the final. So keep reading to discover options for watching absolutely free, and where else you can catch French Open tennis.
