New York: Richard Gasquet's career record against Rafael Nadal shows an embarrassing 10 defeats in 10 matches, but the Frenchman can at least boast one victory over the Spaniard -- when he was 13.

Gasquet reached his first US Open semi-final on Wednesday with a rollercoaster 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3 win over David Ferrer, the Spanish fourth seed.

Nadal then got past Tommy Robredo 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 in his quarter-final, meaning Gasquet will face the great Spaniard once again on Saturday for a place in Monday's title match.
