Two-time defending champion Roger Federer cruised to a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Paradorn Srichaphan on Saturday to reach the Pacific Life Open final. French Open champion Rafael Nadal was to play James Blake later in the day in the other semifinal. If Nadal wins, it would set up a No. 1 vs. No. 2 championship match for the second consecutive ATP Tour final.
