NADAL BEATS DJOKOVIC TO REACH TO MADRID FINAL

Rafael Nadal ended his seven-match losing streak against Novak Djokovic in emphatic fashion by thrashing the world No.2 6-2 6-4 to reach the final of the Madrid Open and move within a step of a third consecutive title this season.
The Spaniard and four-time winner in Madrid got off to a dream start in the 50th meeting between the two great rivals, winning every point in the first game to break Djokovic, with the home crowd wildly celebrating his first point - a potent return which the Serbian could only hit into the ground.
Defending champion Djokovic, who broke with long-time coach Marian Vajda and his staff the week before the tournament in a bid to reverse his downward trajectory of results in the last year, surrendered his serve again in the third game, and Nadal held to go 4-0 up.
