It was the 24th meeting in a final between the world’s top two, and with the roof again closed because of rain in Shanghai, Federer soon built a 4-2 lead.

There was little between them in the early exchanges of the second set until the pivotal fifth game.

Nadal, winner of the US Open and China Open, saved the first break point but could not survive the second as Federer surged to a second Shanghai Masters crown.

Federer is now the only man who can deny Nadal the number one ranking at the end of the year, but the Swiss said the ATP Finals at London’s 02 Arena next month was his main focus.

“I’ll go home and we will work out where I play next, Basel, Paris, one of those or none, before I go to London, which is my priority,” said Federer.

“World number one I don’t think will happen but if I play like this maybe I’ll get close, who knows?”
