Andy Murray got outclassed by 'The King of Clay' Rafael Nadal in straight sets to be knocked out of the French Open.

Nadal took control of the match early on and won easily 6-3, 6-2, 6-1. Murray simply couldn't compete against the Spaniard's serve and forehand.

Andy played well throughout the tournament to reach his second semi-final in Paris; but Nadal has only lost one match here in the past 10 years.

Nadal will now play his ninth French Open final against Novak Djokovic.
