World number two tennis player Roger Federer has moved into the final of the Qatar Open after defeating France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3 7-6 on Friday.
The Swiss star's opponent will be Russia's Nikolay Davydenko who easily beat world number one Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-2 in the other semifinal.
Federer lost to Davydenko at the semifinal stage of the Doha tournament a year ago.
The two-time champion in Qatar broke Tsonga in the second game of the first set and was 2-2 in the second-set tie-break before taking the next five points.
Nadal has been suffering with a fever throughout the week in Doha and was visibly struggling to play at 100 per cent against Davydenko.
The Russian will have his chance to make it two in a row in Qatar when he meets Federer in Saturday's final.
