Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal delivered crushing defeats on Friday to set up their 36th career clash in the semi-finals of the Montreal Masters. Djokovic hammered France's Richard Gasquet 6-1, 6-2 as the top seed motored into final four.

Nadal was equally ruthless with Australian qualifier Marinko Matosevic 6-4, 6-2. Nadal leads his Serbian rival 20-15 in their career series with the pair having played twice in 2013.

Nadal beat Djokovic in a five-set thriller in the semi-finals of the French Open, just weeks after the world number one had taken the Spaniard’s Monte Carlo crown in the final.
