Rafael Nadal beats Tomas Berdych 6-2 6-4 to reach his fifth Rome Masters final in a row.

Rafael Nadal has reached a fifth consecutive Rome Masters final with a straight-sets victory over Tomas Berdych.

The defending champion broke instantly in the first set before a second break allowed him to win it 6-2 in 32 minutes.

Berdych, who defeat world number one Novak Djokovic in the last round, put up more resistance in the second set, but Nadal came through 6-4.

The Spaniard will now face either Roger Federer or Benoit Paire in Sunday's final.
