Roger Federer has defeated World no.1 Rafael Nadal to claim his sixth title of the year.
Federer won 6-4 6-3 over the Spaniard in a contest which took 1hour 12minutes to win the Shanghai Masters.
Federer got off to the perfect start securing an early break in the opening service game to take the initiative in the encounter.
Nadal started getting on the board with his own serve but was unable to make progress against his opponent’s serve and failed to bring up a break point opportunity during both sets.
Federer, who has only suffered four defeats this year, sealed the opening set with his fifth ace of the set before breaking Nadal’s serve in the fifth game of the second set.
The win ensured the 36-year old sealed the 94th title of his amazing career.
