VINA DEL MAR, Chile (AP)—Rafael Nadal beat Jeremy Chardy 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday, putting the Spaniard in both finals of the VTR Open after a seven-month layoff due to a left knee injury and a stomach virus.

Nadal and Juan Monaco won their doubles semifinal on Friday, meaning Nadal is scheduled to play twice on Sunday. He will face Argentine Horacio Zeballos in the singles final and Italy's Paolo Lorenzi and Potito Starace in doubles.

The former No. 1 has played six matches in five days and has yet to drop a set.
