Nadal vs Berdych in Wimbldon final

8:33 am on 3 July 2010

The world number one Rafael Nadal will face the Czech 12th seed Tomas Berdych in the Wimbledon tennis final on Monday, after both men won this morning's semi's against Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic.

Nadal, the top seed and 2008 champion, ended British hopes with a ruthless 6-4 7-6 6-4 victory over Murray, while Berdych also won in straight sets to reach his first Grand Slam final, beating the third seed Novak Djokovic 6-3 7-6 6-3.

Nadal once again stopped Murray's quest for a major title but says he had to play at his very best to get through.

The men's final takes place early on Monday morning while the women's final between Serena Williams and Vera Zvonareva is played overnight tonight.
