MONTREAL, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- Rafael Nadal posted a one-sided win over Marinko Matosevic Friday to earn a semifinal meeting with top-ranked Novak Djokovic at the Rogers Cup.

Nadal defeated Matosevic 6-2, 6-4 and will now face Djokovic for the 36th time. Nadal holds a 20-15 all-time advantage over Djokovic with much of that success having come in clay court tournaments. This tune-up for the U.S. Open is being played on a hard court.

Vasek Pospisil became a surprise semifinalist when Nikolay Davydenko lost the first three games of their meeting and retired with an injury.

Pospisil's semifinal opponent will be fellow Canadian Milos Raonic, who outlasted Ernest Gulbis 7-6 (7-3), 4-6, 6-4. Gulbis eliminated No. 2 seed Andy Murray Thursday.
