Sao Paulo (Brazil): Spaniard Rafael Nadal has continued his recovery trail with another win to advance to the semi finals of the Brazil Open.

Taking on Argentina`s world number 78 Carlos Berlocq, Nadal took 2 hours and 24 minutes to come back from a set down to win the match 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Still playing nowhere near his best, the world number 5, and former world number 1, is playing only his second open in almost 8 months after a serious knee injury forced him out of the circuit for quite a while.

Nadal will now take on another Argentine, Martin Alund, in the semi finals which will be played on Saturday.
