The semifinals are set at Roland Garros with seeded players prevailing on the men's side. The women's draw tells a different story with a qualifier or unseeded player guaranteed to be in the final. 

These are the Top 5 photos from Wednesday in Paris.

Roland Garros

It was another gloomy and cold day, with temperatures hanging around the upper 50s. Coaches, families and fans were bundled up with scarves and beanies all day long as they took in another action-packed day in Paris. Rain is expected to fall again on Friday, but finals weekend seems to be offering up a little sunshine.

Novak Djokovic

The world No. 1 struggled in the early portions of the match with pain in his elbow. Although he dropped the opening set against Pablo Carreno Busta, he managed to get the job done with a 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 win to reach his 10th Roland Garros semifinal.

Sofia Kenin

The Aussie Open champion scored her first win in four attempts against Danielle Collins. Kenin secured her first Roland Garros semifinal showing by edging past her countrywoman  6-4, 4-6, 6-0. The American is now 15-1 at the majors this season and will take on Petra Kvitova on Thursday.

Danielle Collins

It was a rough day at the office for Collins as she struggled emotionally on the court. At one point in the second set after failing to convert two break point opportunities, she yelled "sit in a different spot, sit in a different spot," to her boyfriend/trainer sitting in the stands. 

"I had my boyfriend move to a different spot because I was distracted by something in front of him," Collins told press. "I just wanted to be able to look at him from a different location."

Stefanos Tsitsipas 

Since losing his first two sets in Paris, the Greek hasn't lost a single set. Tsitsipas rolled past Rublev, 7-5, 6-2, 6-3, to land in his second career semifinal showing and his first in Paris. The world No. 6 will next face Djokovic, who has only lost one match in 2020.
