Rafael Nadal set up a potential Rome Masters final with Swiss rival Roger Federer after dominating Tomas Berdych 6-2, 6-4 in the semi-finals on Saturday.

Berdych had caused the first major upset of the tournament when he ousted world number one Novak Djokovic on Friday.

However, despite an improved second set performance against the fifth seed, the Czech could not match Nadal's power as the Spaniard put himself within touch of a second title within a week following his Madrid Masters triumph last Sunday.
