PARIS (AP) -- Rafael Nadal moved one victory away from a record
seventh French Open title by overwhelming sixth-seeded David Ferrer
6-2, 6-2, 6-1 Friday to reach a fifth consecutive Grand Slam final.

The second-seeded Nadal even won a point in the second set
despite slipping to the clay and hitting a shot while sitting on
the court. He hasn't lost a set in the tournament this year.

Nadal and Bjorn Borg share the record of six French Open
trophies.

Nadal is 51-1 at Roland Garros. The only time he entered the
tournament and didn't win it was in 2009, when he lost in the
fourth round to Robin Soderling.

The 26-year-old Spaniard also is bidding for an 11th career
Grand Slam title, which would tie him for fourth most in tennis
history.
