The world number two raced to a 6-1 6-3 win over the fifth-seeded Serbian in one hour seven minutes.

The four-time French Open winner will face world number one Roger Federer or third seed Nikolay Davydenko in the final.

The Spaniard converted three of his four break points in a one-sided opening set, winning an impressive 65% of points on Troicki’s first serve.

Nadal set up four more break-point opportunities in the second set, taking two, as the Serbian again struggled to cope with his powerful returns.

Troicki also claimed a late break of his own, but it merely delayed the inevitable.
