French Open 2011: Nadal Advances To Finals, Watch Djokovic/Federer Online

Top-seeded Rafael Nadal defeated Andy Murray in straight sets in the seminfinals of the 2011 French Open. Nadal now, of course, advances to the finals which will be held on Sunday. Nadal cruised past Murray 6-4, 7-5 and 6-4 respectively. 


Nadal's opponent is currently unknown. Novak Djokovic is currently trailing Roger Federer early in the other semifinal at Roland-Garros. If you can't get to NBC to check out if Djokovic can continue his amazing winning streak, you can always watch the match online thanks to NBC Sports. 


As much as I like Federer, I find myself rooting for Djokovic for a showdown against Nadal. I'd like to see Djokovic's streak tested against Nadal on the biggest clay court stage - and it doesn't really get any bigger than Roland-Garros and the French Open. I also don't believe Federer would be much of a match for Nadal on the clay - and I'd rather not have a boring championship match.
