PARIS (AFP) - World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and nine-time champion Rafael Nadal were seeded to meet in the French Open semi-finals when the draw was made on Friday.

Djokovic needs a Roland Garros title to complete a career grand slam after losing three finals including last year to Stan Wawrinka.

Fourth-seed Wawrinka is scheduled to take on second-seed Andy Murray in the other semi-final.
