BBC Sport - Australian Open: Rafael Nadal beats Rodger Federer in semi-final
Nadal beats Federer in straight sets
- From the section Tennis
Rafael Nadal defeats Rodger Federer in straight sets to reach the final of the Australian Open.
Nadal, winner of 13 Grand Slam titles, had too much power for the Swiss, who has still never defeated the Spaniard at a hard court Grand Slam.
The top seed will play Federer's Swiss compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka in the final on Sunday, a player he has never lost to, as he bids to become the first man to win all four Grand Slams twice in the Open era.
