Roger Federer denied Rafael Nadal a first Shanghai Masters title as he powered his way to a straight-sets victory in Sunday’s final.
The Swiss player beat our champ for a fourth time this season and fifth in succession, needing three breaks of serve and 82 minutes to claim his 94th career title thanks to a 6-4, 6-3 victory.
Rafa didn’t move well and we just hope his knee is not bothering him too much.
After the match, Rafa said:
I want to congratulate Roger for a great year. Today you played a fantastic match.
This year for me has been my most successful year in China. It’s been a great two weeks, I feel very happy for what has happened for me.
