Nadal Beats Gasquet in Straight Sets for U.S. Open Title Spot

Sept. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Rafael Nadal beat Richard Gasquet in straight sets to reach the men’s final at the U.S. Open and set up a championship rematch with top-ranked Novak Djokovic.

Nadal, the No. 2 seed, beat Gasquet, seeded No. 8, 6-4, 7-6 (7-1), 6-2, at the National Tennis Center in New York today.

Djokovic defeated ninth-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland 2-6, 7-6 (7-4), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in today’s opening semifinal, a match that lasted more than four hours.

The championship match in two days will be the third time in four years that Nadal and Djokovic have played for the title in the final Grand Slam event of the season. Nadal won in 2010 and Djovokic in 2011.
