That meant the pair's wait to go head-to-head will continue, having not shared the court on the ATP Tour since October 2017 in the final of the Shanghai Masters.

Nadal remains without a title since Toronto in August past year and a win over Federer since the Australian Open in 2017 but with a four-week break he will re-emerge for the clay-court season in Monte Carlo before yet another French Open at Roland Garros. "Now it starts the process that I have to decide what direction we have to take to recover well and to recover as soon as possible".

"So I think Roger will have the steel, he will come through Rafa and win this title again", said Rusedski on Amazon Prime. After an uninspiring performance against unseeded German Philipp Kohlschreiber, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic parked his run in the third round and then turned his attention to doubles.

The Spanish superstar, who has battled knee tendinitis and other injuries throughout his career, made it through a 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (7/2) win over Karen Khachanov in the quarter-finals on Friday.

Federer has received a bye straight to the final, where he will face Dominic Thiem after he beat Milos Raonic in the other semi-final.

Just hours earlier Federer had looked forward to the chance to take on a healthy Nadal, after similar knee trouble spelled the end of the Spaniard's US Open campaign last year, and his US Open campaign last year.

"He's playing very well, using the kick serve very effectively", Federer said after watching the final set of Thiem's semifinal win. I hope I can play aggressive tennis against him.

In his post-match press conference, Nadal admitted to reporters that he would have to see how he felt the following day.

"It's always something special to play [Federer] and also something special to compete in a Masters 1000 final", Thiem said after his semifinal match.

"The way we go about it is very different, yet we both find a way to excel", Federer said. "It's wonderful that I came this far, and hopefully it's not the end".
