Nadal, the current world No. 2, has not played a main tour event since a knee problem forced him to retire during his US Open semi-final against Juan Martin del Potro in September a year ago. In the decider, the World No. 26 took an early 2-0 lead to put pressure on Djokovic and although the reigning Wimbledon and US Open made a valiant bid to bounce back, Bautista Agut held on to register one of his remarkable wins of his career.

The final of the competition will be between Bautista Agut and wildcard Tomas Berdych on Saturday.

Berdych eased through to his second Doha final in straight sets, beating Italy's Marco Cecchinato 7-6 (8/6) 6-3.

Bautista-Agut also reached the semi finals here in 2014.

Djokovic and Nadal have met in the finals of all four of the Grand Slams and 52 times in total.
