Rafael Nadal defeated Frenchman Gael Monfils, 6-3, 6-4 on Saturday to reach the final of the Stuttgart Open.

The Spanish top seed could become the first man to win titles at the event on both clay and this year's new grass surface if he wins the Sunday final against either second seed Marin Cilic or Serb Viktor Troicki.

Nadal dominated Monfils over 79 minutes, defeating the fourth seed despite 11 aces off the French racquet. Nadal, who claimed Stuttgart titles on clay in 2005 and 2007, has won 11 of their 13 meetings.
