Nadal breezes into French final
Rafael Nadal was in formidable form as he beat David Ferrer in straight sets to reach the final of the French Open on Friday.
The Spaniard has been in scintillating form in his favourite Grand Slam once again this term and saw off Ferrer with what looked like relative ease 6-2 6-2 6-1 in an hour and 46 minutes. Nadal has a superb record at Roland Garros and has not dropped a set in the competition this term, as he goes in search of his seventh French Open title. The 26-year-old, who will face either Novak Djokovic of Roger Federer in the final in Paris, was delighted with his performance against Ferrer on Friday. He said: "Today was my best match of the tournament, against the best player I've faced here so far. "It is a very important victory for me - to win with this result against one of the best players of moment, and the world. "I don't believe in perfection, it doesn't exist in my opinion, you can play always better. But I'm very happy with the way I'm playing."
