World No. 1 Rafael Nadal and World No. 2 Roger Federer will renew their storied rivalry during the Shanghai Masters finals on Sunday. Nadal is trying to win a world record 31st Masters 1000 title and his maiden Shanghai Masters championship. Shanghai: Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will meet in Sunday`s final of the Shanghai Masters, just the latest chapter in their storied rivalry. The celebrated duo have faced one another 37 times, with the Spaniard and world number one Nadal winning 23 of their contests.
Nadal, on a 16-match winning streak, is the favourite to prevail on Sunday. However, Federer has got the better of his Spanish nemesis in recent years, having beaten Nadal on four consecutive occasions dating back to Basel in 2015. This year, Federer has defeated Nadal thrice — the finals at the Australian Open and Miami Open, besides the Round of 16 at Indian Wells. In what will be the 38th meeting between the two icons, Federer and Nadal will be battling for the World No. 1 ranking for the first time since Beijing in 2013.
With victories on Saturday and Sunday, Nadal will officially end 2017 as the World No. 1 — regardless of the outcome at next month’s Nitto ATP Finals in London. Nadal has ended the year as the No. 1 ranked player on three occasions before 2008, 2010 and 2013. After starting the year with a host of injury worries, the Spaniard has flipped the script by conquering the French Open and U.S. Open crowns to improve his career Grand Slam tally to 16. By finishing the year on a high, Nadal would enter the 2018 Australian Open as the favourite.
