Rafael Nadal has waltzed into the semi-finals of the Melbourne Park Summer Set without hitting a ball.

The 20-times grand slam champion received a walkover on Friday when his Dutch opponent Tallon Griekspoor withdrew due to a foot injury.

Rafa will play Finland’s unseeded Emil Ruusuvuori on Saturday for a place in the final. Ruusuvuori earlier thumped Slovakian Alex Molcan 6-2 6-1.
