Rafael Nadal says that he is "very happy" and "emotional" after reaching his third consecutive final since returning from a long-term knee injury.

World number five Rafael Nadal has admitted that he is "very happy" and "emotional" after reaching his third consecutive final since returning from injury.

Nadal will meet fellow Spaniard David Ferrer in tomorrow's final after beating Nicolas Almagro in the semis.

"It's a very, very happy moment for me to be in another final," the 11-time grand slam champion said.

"[Three in a row] is something I couldn't think of at the start of the season because of my knee.

"This week has been very emotional for me. I am starting to feel freedom to run for almost every ball, so that's the best possible news and I'm enjoying the tennis."

Nadal had been out for several months last season after problems with his knee.
