Nadal, Djokovic to clash

Afp
Sunday, March 30, 2014

MIAMI - Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have advanced to the final of the Miami Masters after both Kei Nishikori and Tomas Berdych pulled out of yesterday's semi-finals.

The ATP Tour and tournament officials said on their Twitter feeds that seventh-seeded Czech Berdych had withdrawn from his scheduled evening clash with top-seeded Nadal "due to gastroenteritis."

Nishikori had earlier pulled out of his final-four meeting with Djokovic because of a groin injury.

It was a bizarre turn of events that wiped out the day's singles action but nevertheless produced a predictable pair of finalists in the tournament's top two seeds.
