Nadal beats Murray to join Djokovic in U.S. Open final

NEW YORK, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Rafa Nadal, his form and confidence rising with every match, defeated Britain's Andy Murray 6-4 6-2 3-6 6-2 in the U.S. Open semi-finals on Saturday to join Novak Djokovic in a repeat of last year's final.

The Spaniard was untroubled beating an out-of-sorts Murray, who began shouting at himself as his frustrations started to boil over, to reach Monday's final with the loss of just one set in six matches.

Nadal beat Djokovic in last year's final but the Serb, who advanced with a thrilling five-set win over Roger Federer, has beaten him in five finals this year, including Wimbledon, to replace him as world number one.
