Toni Nadal, the uncle and coach of Rafael Nadal, breaks down in tears after his nephew’s five-set victory over World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the semifinals of Roland Garros. Rafael Nadal was off the tour for seven months due to knee trouble.

"It is a miracle," Toni Nadal told reporters.

Rafael Nadal was also reportedly shedding tears of joy in the locker room afterward, as was his agent, Carlos Costa.
