Rafael Nadal reached the final of the Qatar Open today by coming from behind to beat German qualifier Peter Gojowczyk 4-6 6-2 6-3.

Nadal lost the first three games against the 162nd ranked Gojowczyk but came back to level the first set before losing serve again in the 10th game.

The top-ranked Spaniard then raced to a 4-1 lead in the second and broke Gojowczyk's in the third game of the decider after two forehand errors by the German.

Nadal will play Gael Monfils of France or Florian Mayer of Germany in tomorrow's final.
