Miami, 2 April 2011 | AFP

World No.1 Rafael Nadal defeated third-seeded Roger Federer 6-3 6-2 on Friday to reach the final of the ATP Masters in Miami.

Spain’s Nadal set up a clash with red-hot Serbian Novak Djokovic, who remained unbeaten in 2011 with a 6-3 6-1 semi-final victory over American Mardy Fish.

In Sunday’s final Nadal and Djokovic will reprise their contest in the final at the Indian Wells Masters less than a fortnight ago, when Djokovic triumphed to claim his third title of the year.
