French Open Men's Semifinals
Roger Federer will face No. 2 Rafael Nadal (photo) in the finals for the second year in a row. Nadal defeated No. 6 Novak Djokovic 7-5, 6-4, 6-2 to advance to Sunday's title match.
Nadal is seeking to become the first man to win three-consecutive titles at Roland Garros since Bjorn Borg in 1978-81.
Nadal continued his dominance on clay, improving to 20-0 at Roland Garros and 33-0 in best-of-five-set matches on clay.
Despite a strong effort by Novak Djokovic, Nadal won in straight sets. He has not dropped a set during this tournament.
Roger Federer set a record by advancing to his eighth-consecutive Grand Slam final. His last loss in a Major came against Rafael Nadal in the '06 French Open. The two will face off again Sunday.
No. 1 Roger Federer overcame a deficit in every set to defeat No. 4 Nikolay Davydenko 7-5, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (7) and move within one victory of his first French Open title.
Nikolay Davydenko could not capitalize on Federer's sluggishness and fell to 0-9 against the top-ranked Swiss.
Davydenko finished 3-for-17 on break-point chances and committed 53 unforced errors.
