Friday's matches have contributed to something of a shock semi-final line-up this afternoon in the French capital, with our outright pick, Juan Martin del Potro, succumbing to a final-set defeat to John Isner, while Rafa Nadal pulled out of his match with Filip Krajinovic - giving the Serb a dream week regardless of today's result - with a knee injury, which also makes him a doubt for the tour finals in a week's time.
'My goal this year was to play challengers to pick up points for next year, ' the Serb said. Krajinovic then knelt and kissed the court.
Isner, meanwhile, once again fell short of the title after the American was soundly defeated in the finals past year by Andy Murray.
The 77th-ranked Krajinovic had only won 17 matches in his whole career - thwarted by a wrist injury - before this tournament. Isner has won 12 ATP titles and has $12,317,944 in career earnings. Sock can still qualify for London if he wins the tournament.
In addition, John's hopes of reaching the World Tour Finals faded away, as he needed to win the title to pass Pablo Carreno Busta in the rankings. He was supposed to face Nadal in the quarter-finals yesterday, but the World Number 1 pulled himself out of the tournament which sent the Serbian straight into the semis. Nadal has not said whether he will be fit enough to play in the season-ending ATP Finals, starting November 12 in London. Having seen Krajinovic take out two top Americans, Jack will not want to become the third in a week.

Isner dominated the second-set tiebreaker and leveled the match with an ace. She appeared fully conscious and had her eyes open.
Isner forged a break point at the start of the third set, but missed it with a wasteful forehand.
A powerful forehand gave Isner another chance on Krajinovic's serve at 30-40 in the ninth game, but Krajinovic saved that one, too. Isner had the advantage in the quickest rallies up to 4 shots, thanks to a huge number of service winners, and Krajinovic compensated that in the longer exchanges, where he showed the strength and consistency of his groundstrokes to oust the big server. The second set saw commanding holds from both players and there were no break points, it went into a tie break and it was a must win for Isner, who has vast experience in these situations, unlike Krajinovic.
A whipped forehand victor into an open side of the court was enough for victory, prompting wild celebrations from Krajinovic's coach, Petar Popovic, who was topless as he shook his fists in delight.
