China Open: Nadal to face Djokovic in final

  • Fourteen-time Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal defeated Italy's Fabio Fognini in straight sets so set up a clash with Novak Djokovic in the finals of the China Open.

    Fognini had beaten the Spaniard three times in 2015, including in the US Open, but this time Nadal held his nerve in a closely-fought first set that featured five breaks of serve.

    Meanwhile, World number one Djokovic eased past David Ferrer 6-2 6-3 in the second semi-final.
