Rafael Nadal insisted he still "feels pressure" and is "only human," after battling back from a set down to beat Diego Schwartzman Thursday and set up a French Open semifinal clash with Juan Martin del Potro.The 16-time Grand Slam champion was pushed for three hours and 42 minutes by 11th seed Schwartzman, but will face Del Potro for a place in the final after the fifth seed downed Marin Cilic 7-6 (5), 5-7, 6-3, 7-5 .It took Nadal just two quickfire points to wrap up the set and leave the two players with effectively a best-of-three set match to play Thursday.The fifth seed has now beaten Cilic, who made 74 unforced errors, eight times in a row, but Friday he will face arguably the toughest test in tennis against Nadal on Court Philippe Chatrier.
