Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal in straight sets in the final of the Shanghai Open as he registered his fifth straight win over the Spaniard. Federer got one over his old rival Nadal to win the Shanghai Masters 6-4, 6-3 on Sunday in a showdown between the two best players on the planet. It was a 94th title for the Swiss legend, drawing him level with the great Ivan Lendl, and closes the gap on world number one Nadal at the top of the rankings as the season reaches its conclusion. In-form Nadal was ahead in their overall record down the years, with 23 wins to Federer’s 14. Nadal, on a great run of form that won him the US Open and China Open in recent weeks, saved the first break point but could not survive the second one to put Federer in reach of a second Shanghai Masters crown.(Video credit: SNTV)
