Nadal def. Murray, 6-3, 6-2, 6-1.

Rafael Nadal dominated Andy Murray on his way to the 2014 French Open men's final.

Nadal outplayed the seventh-seeded Murray from the start, and as the match went on, the Spaniard got stronger, while the Scot wilted. 

The eight-time champion at Roland Garros only needed one hour and 40 minutes to dispense of Murray, who entered the match with four more hours of playing time at the tournament than Nadal. 

The Spaniard also owned every stat category with 12 more winners, nine less unforced errors and a 24 percent difference in first-serve percentage compared to Murray.

The No. 1 seed will play in his 20th Grand Slam, and ninth French Open, final Sunday against No. 2 Novak Djokovic.
