Roland Garros Day 13 - Agony, ecstasy, history - Nadal vs. Ruud in final

It was a weird day at Roland Garros, with Alexander Zverev's injury curtailing the first semi-final and a protestor interrupting the second. Catherine, David and Matt discuss where the matches were won and lost, how the conditions impacted Zverev vs. Nadal, the emotional toll this tournament is taking on Nadal, what happened to Marin Cilic as he faded, and why reaching a first slam final is a big deal for Casper Ruud.
