The world number three tennis player Rafael Nadal has set up an all-Spanish final against compatriot David Ferrer at the Rome Masters tournament.

Nadal beat the Latvian Ernests Gulbis 6-4 3-6 6-4 in the semi-finals but had problems with the 40th-ranked Gulbis's powerful game, saying afterwards that Gulbis was top 10 material.

The 21-year-old Gulbis beat world number one Roger Federer earlier this week.
