Defending champion Rafael Nadal remained on course for the Rome Masters final after coming through a tough quarter-final against fellow Spaniard David Ferrer on Friday.

Nadal prevailed 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 in a 2hr 46min thriller in which Ferrer's challenge only petered out in the deciding set.

Nadal will now meet Tomas Berdych in Saturday's semi-final after the Czech ousted world number one and top seed Novak Djokovic.

It is Nadal's second win over Ferrer inside a fortnight after his quarter-final victory over him on his way to the Madrid Masters title last week.
