Nadal and Federer Advance
PARIS (AP) -- It's a dream matchup in Paris in the men's French Open final on Sunday. Top-seed Rafael Nadal will once again square off against nemesis Roger Federer, the third-seed in the tournament. Nadal advanced with a 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 win over Andy Murray, while Federer disposed of Novak Djokovic 7-6, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6.

Djokovic entered the match unbeaten in 41 matches this year.
Nadal and Federer have met 24 times, with Nadal winning 16 of the encounters.
The pairing is their fourth in six years in the French Open final.
The loss cost Djokovic the world No. 1 ranking.


The women's championship match is set for Saturday with sixth seed Li Na facing No. 5 and defending champion Francesca Schiavone.
