PARIS (AP) - Rafael Nadal is on another roll at the French Open, winning his past 12 sets heading into a semifinal showdown Friday against top-ranked Novak Djokovic.

After falling behind in each of his first three matches, Nadal looks dominant again. He's 57-1 at Roland Garros and on the verge of becoming the first man to win eight titles at the same Grand Slam event.

The Nadal-Djokovic winner will play for the title Sunday against No. 4-seeded David Ferrer or No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who meet in the other semifinal.

Tsonga's trying to become the first Frenchman since Yannick Noah in 1983 to win Roland Garros. But Nadal vs. Djokovic has the feel of a final, and it's a match that's been much anticipated since the draw was announced.
