The world number one looked on course for a routine victory when he took the first set, but Simon produced a stunning fightback to claim a 3-6 7-5 7-6 (8/6) victory in three hours 22 minutes.
He sealed victory after challenging a Nadal forehand which had been called good but was shown to have missed the baseline by inches.
The Frenchman will meet Britain’s Andy Murray, who beat Roger Federer earlier in the day, in Sunday’s final.
