SATURDAY PREVIEW – DJOKOVIC & NADAL ONE WIN AWAY FROM REPEAT SHOWDOWN        

• The semi-finals on Saturday at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters include three of the Top 8 players in the Emirates ATP Rankings, led by the World No.  1, eight-time reigning champion, top player from France and unseeded Italian in his first career ATP Masters 1000 semi-final.

• No. 3 seed Rafael Nadal survived one of his biggest scares in nine years here to advance to the semi-finals and face No. 6 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for the 11th time. Nadal leads the head-to-head 7-3 (1-0 on clay).  The reigning eight-time champion Nadal defeated Grigor Dimitrov 62 26 64 in the quarter-finals and improved to 47-1 here with his 45th consecutive match win. He’s only lost seven sets here since winning the title for the first time in 2005. The Spaniard has a career record of 43-1 in ATP World Tour level semi-finals, winning 43 straight since his first career clay court semi-final loss to No. 4 Carlos Moya at 2003 Umag.  Tsonga ended a six-match losing streak in ATP Masters 1000 quarter-finals as he defeated No. 13 seed Stanislas Wawrinka in three sets on Friday. The Frenchmen, who turned 28 on Wednesday, is appearing in his fifth career ATP Masters 1000 semi-final (2-2 mark), first on clay and first since reaching the final at 2011 Paris-Bercy (l. to Federer). Tsonga, who is 0-7 against Top 5 opponents on clay, is attempting to become the fifth different player ranked in the Top 10 to defeat Nadal on clay (Nadal has a career 57-6 record vs Top 10 on clay, winning 13 in a row. 

• In the following match, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic faces Italian Fabio Fognini for the second time this year and fifth overall (Djokovic leads 4-0). The 25-year-old Djokovic, a two-time finalist (2009 & ’12), who was extended to three sets in his first two matches, looks to have found his form after dismissing 31-year-old Jarkko Nieminen 64 63 on Friday. Djokovic is appearing in his fifth semi-final here. “It was great," said Djokovic. "Very solid from the back of the court. Played with the right intensity from the start of the match till the end. That's a big step forward for me today comparing to the first two matches in every sense. I finally got a great feel on the clay. Hopefully I can maintain that level tomorrow." The 25-year-old Serb is appearing in his 34th career ATP Masters 1000 semi-final, 23-10 (7-4 on clay) record in semi-final matches, has won five straight since losing to No. 12 Fernando Verdasco here in  2010 ATP. The unseeded Fognini record his second Top 10 win in a row as he defeated No. 9 Richard Gasquet 76(0) 62. He is the first Italian player to reach the semi-finals here since Andrea Gaudenzi in 1995 (l. to Muster). He is the first unseeded semi-finalist in Monte-Carlo since wild card Juan Carlos Ferrero and qualifier Gasquet in 2005 and is the first Italian to reach an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 semi-final since Andreas Seppi in Hamburg in May 2008. An Italian has never reached an ATP Masters 1000 final (since 1990).

• In doubles semi-final action the No.1 seeds Bob and Mike Bryan face the first-time pairing of Milos Raonic of Canada and Bernard Tomic of Australia. The Bryan brothers are looking to win their third consecutive ATP Masters 1000 Monte Carlo title and fourth overall (2007, 2011-’12).  They are 4-1 in finals this season, capturing their 86th and first ATP Masters 1000 Indian Wells title (d. Huey-Janowicz) last month. The other semi-final features another first time pairing with France’s Julien Benneteau and Serbia’s Nenad Zimonjic facing the Spanish duo of David Marrero and Fernando Verdasco. Marrero and Verdasco have four career doubles titles (all last year) and are playing in their first ATP Masters 1000 doubles semi-final.
