Rafael Nadal rallied to advance to the French Open semifinals for the ninth time, beating David Ferrer 4-6, 6-4, 6-0, 6-1 on Wednesday.

The eight-time champion at Roland Garros lost the first set, but then seemed to race through the next three to ensure he had the day off on Thursday.

Nadal will face Andy Murray in the semifinals.

Nadal improved his record to 64-1 at the French Open, and stretched his unbeaten streak to 33. His only loss came in the fourth round of the 2009 tournament, when Robin Soderling beat him.
