Novak Djokovic  will meet Rafael Nadal  in the final of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia tonight after the match was rescheduled from yesterday due to persistent rain. World number one Djokovic won through to the decider with a 6-2 7-6 victory over Roger Federer in the semi-finals, while Nadal dropped just six games in dispatching of countryman David Ferrer.

The pair have met on 31 previous occasions, with the Spaniard having a 17-14 advantage over the world number one. On clay, Nadal has a 10-2 advantage, although both of the Serbian’s clay court wins came in three of their most recent clashes on the surface. Prior to Nadal’s straight sets  win in the final of the Monte-Carlo Masters last month, Djokovic had won seven consecutive matches between the pair, including a 6-4 6-4  success in last year’s final at this event.
