Nadal advances to another clay court final in Madrid

World No. 5 Rafael Nadal is on his way to the final of the ATP Mutua Madrid Open Sunday.

The clay-court maestro breezed through his semifinal matchup with fellow Spaniard Pablo Andujar 6-0, 6-4.

Nadal has won the tournament twice (2005, 2010) and Sunday will mark his fifth finals appearance in Madrid.

Rafa will face Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka in the final Sunday. Nadal, -900 Sunday, has never lost to Wawrinka and is 3-0 on clay in their head-to-head matchups.

It has been an incredibly successful return from a knee injury for Nadal. Sunday will be his seventh consecutive finals appearance since returning from injury and the southpaw has now won 46 straight semifinal matches on clay.

At Bet365.com, Nadal is currently -110 to win next week's ATP tournament in Rome and -120 to win the French Open. The second Grand Slam event gets underway May 26 in Paris.
