Wimbledon champion Roger Federer got the better of his rival Rafael Nadal yesterday in the Shanghai Masters final as he defeated the Spaniard 6-4, 6-3.
It was his sixth title this year, the fourth win of the year against Nadal and his fifth in succession over the Spaniard.
His 94th career title moves him level with Ivan Lendl in terms of Open era titles, 15 behind American Jimmy Connors.
Federer is the only man who can deny Nadal the number one ranking at the end of the year, though his only focus is on the ATP finals in London.
The Swiss has only lost four games this year.
