Federer trumps over Nadal in Shanghai Masters final

The 19-time grand slam winner says he is eyeing a seventh ATP Finals crown.

Roger Federer claimed his sixth title of the year after defeating Rafeal Nadal in the Shanghai Open finals on Sunday.

The 19-time grand slam winner who claimed his 94th title says he is eyeing a seventh ATP Finals crown and will not rule out pinching the world number one ranking from Rafael Nadal if he maintains the form that won him his second Shanghai Masters trophy.

”London is my priority now and I really want to win the World Tour Finals,“ the evergreen 36-year-old told Sky Sports. ”I am very excited to have had the year that I have had and everything that comes from here is a bonus.

“Finishing the year as world number one is a long shot, and I don’t think it will happen but if I play like this, who knows? Maybe I will get close again.”

Shangai was Federer’s first tournament since the U.S. Open and the confidence he gained from his opening matches helped him through a taxing schedule.
