It wasn’t the classic we hoped for – in fact it was pretty one-sided, with the Spaniard winning 7-6, 6-3, 6-3.
He will face Stanislas Wawrinka in Sunday’s final.
“I have a tough opponent in front [of me]. Wawrinka is playing amazing, he should come to this final with big confidence,” Nadal said. “I never thought about having 13 Grand Slams so I never thought about having 14. The one thing I can swear is that I’m going to try my best. I need to keep playing great. His serve is huge, and he’s hitting the ball really hard. I need to play aggressive and play the same way I played tonight.”
You have to feel sorry for Federer, who’s struggled with his game a lot over the last year, and you can’t help think he has probably missed out on his last ever chance to win a Grand Slam.
