Federer have set up a mouthwatering final in Shanghai after coming through a packed draw this week.

The Spaniard progressed to the final after overcoming Marin Cilic in straight sets in his semi-final.

Federer was almost on the wrong-end of an upset in his last four match against Juan Martin del Potro after the Argentine won the opening set, but the world No2 fought back to win.

Despite the two sporting legends facing off 37 times in their professional careers, Nadal and Federer have never met at the Shanghai Masters.

They have met in the Chinese city twice during the Tennis Masters Cup with Federer winning both matches.

It promises to be another enticing affair between to two tennis giants and here’s five interesting facts about the duo’s rivalry.

Nadal looks to be shaping up to shake off that early service break when Federer whips a forehand winner across court which unnerves the Spaniard again. From the comfort of 30-0 up, Nadal strikes long to bring Federer level. A body serve catches Federer out and Nadal manages to stop the Swiss’ momentum for the time being.

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. And the 31-year-old Nadal, who has never won the Shanghai Masters, will be slight favourite this time because he goes into the showdown on a terrific run of form and Federer faces a quicker turn around. Nadal, a 16-time Grand Slam champion, triumphed at the US Open and then last week at the China Open for his sixth title of another remarkable campaign.
But he was forced to survive a roller-coaster with fourth seed Marin Cilic in their semi-final, saving three set points in the opener before pulling through 7-5, 7-6 (7/3). The Swiss Federer, the world number two chasing a second Shanghai crown, rolled back the years to recover from a set down and defeat Juan Martin del Potro 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.The 36-year-old Federer afterwards dismissed concerns about his shorter rest time — his was the later match — and called the rivalry with Nadal “special”. “The way we both play, play so very different from one another, and also the attitude, the way we go through our lives, it’s all very different in some ways,” said Federer, a crowd favourite in Shanghai. “But we have a similar mindset in the big moments, I came to realise that when we played doubles (together recently at the Laver Cup).

the Shanghai Masters finals on Sunday. Nadal is trying to win a world record 31st Masters 1000 title and his maiden Shanghai Masters championship.

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.

Though Federer trails Nadal 14-23 in career head-to-head matches, recent history suggests that the Swiss Master has found ways to overcome his biggest hurdle. And Federer believes Nadal has made him a better player.

“I don’t want to thank him for that, but he made me maybe rework my game and go back to the practice courts and think about what I could change maybe to become a better player. I think for that I’m happy about the losses I took. Took them on the chin and kept moving forward. It’s nice at this late stage of the career that we still have these matches going on,” Federer said on the eve of Sunday’s Shanghai Masters final.
