Federer beats Nadal, wins Shanghai Masters

Federer 'saves best for last' to beat Nadal in Shanghai

But with his victory in Shanghai, the 36 year old moved closer to Nadal and Djokovic's record of 30 Masters 1000 victories with his 27th title.

Roger Federer extended his winning streak over Rafael Nadal this year to four matches after beating the top-ranked Spaniard 6-4, 6-3 to win the Shanghai Masters on Sunday. It's his 94th career title.

It was Federer's fifth consecutive victory over his archrival-the first time he's beaten Nadal in five straight matches-as he narrowed the Spaniard's lead in their iconic rivalry to 23-15. "I thought I might struggle early because it was a late finish last night".

"I felt I was playing well all week and that settled my nerves because I was returning well from the match here against (Diego) Schwartzman (in his opener). Today I think you played a fantastic match, so many congratulations", Nadal said.

"I don't know [if I will play Basel or Paris]", he added.

But given Nadal reportedly was spotted limping afterwards in the bowels of the stadium, unable to bend his knee to get up on the press conference platform, we'll see what's next.

The long-time friends and foes crossed paths as Nadal was leaving the court and Federer was entering it. The 19-time Grand Slam champion broke in the opening game, played attacking points with objective and never permitted the 10-time Roland Garros to get comfortable or extend rallies. "It was very clear for me how I had to play and I was able to do it for the one hour and 12 minutes that I was out there".

Finally, Jacobi Capital Management LLC raised its holdings in shares of Bank of America Corporation by 21.0% in the 1st quarter. Analysts await Bank of America Corporation (NASDAQ: BAC ) to report earnings on Oct, 13 for the fiscal quarter ending Sep 2017.

"In a way not surprising because I felt good all week..." "When you play against somebody that is better than you in most of the things that really matters on this sport in this kind of surface, then it's tougher".

What a season it has been for Roger Federer!

Despite his dominance in 2017 over rival Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer doesn't like his chances of catching Nadal in their head-to-head record.

Nadal also had a good takeaway from the tournament.

Federer, who has won the last five encounters between the pair dating back to the 2015 Basel final, also beat Nadal in the Australian Open final, a round of 16 match at Indian Wells and the Miami final this year. It was an excellent tournament for both superstars, who are closing out 2017 and looking to carry momentum into 2018.

Federer, meanwhile, just said that he was grooving.
