Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will meet for the 16th time on clay on Friday

Roger Federer has vowed to be “fearless” when he takes on his old rival Rafael Nadal for the 39th time in the French Open semi-finals.

Having returned to the tournament after a four-year hiatus, Federer has produced some vintage form on the clay and he was superb in a 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 victory over fellow countryman Stan Wawrinka to make the last four for the first time in seven years.

Nadal leads his head to head against Federer 23-15 and has won all five of their matches at Roland Garros, most recently in four sets in the 2011 final.
