DOHA, Qatar (AP) - Rafael Nadal advanced to the 99th final of his career on Friday at the Qatar Open.

The second-seeded Spaniard, who has won 67 titles, including 14 majors, beat Illya Marchenko of Ukraine 6-3, 6-4.

Nadal will face either top-seeded Novak Djokovic of Serbia or third-seeded Tomas Berdych of Czech Republic in the final - his first on a hard court since he won the 2014 Qatar Open title.
