Djokovic downs off-colour Nadal in Paris semi-final

PARIS: In-form third seed Novak Djokovic reached the ATP Paris Masters final after eliminating second seed Rafael Nadal with a comprehensive 6-2, 6-3 victory at the Bercy arena here on Saturday.

Djokovic, who won the Basel tournament last weekend, looked in control from the very start of the match and encountered little resistance from an uncharacteristically subdued Nadal, who is without a title since May.

The Serb will play the winner of the second semi-final between French 15th seed Gael Monfils and Czech 13th seed Radek Stepanek in Sunday’s final.
