Nadal and Djokovic to play for Doha title
Rafael Nadal is into his 99th career final after easily beating Illya Marchenko 6–3, 6–4 on Friday. Novak Djokovic overcame a poor start and a tough second set against Tomas Berdych on Friday to win 6–3, 7–6 (3) in Doha to advance to the finals and move one step closer to capturing his 60th ATP title.
The highest-ranked player Nadal has played this week in Doha is No. 66 Robin Haase, while Djokovic's path to the final has gone through No. 49 Fernando Verdasco, No. 35 Leonardo Mayer and No. 6 Berdych. Their head-to-head matchup is locked at 23-all, with their most recent matches coming last year at the ATP Finals in November (Djokovic, 6–3, 6–3), Beijing in October (Djokovic, 6–2, 6–2) and Roland Garros in May (Djokovic, 7–5, 6–3, 6–1).
