Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will meet for the 38th time tomorrow in the Shanghai Masters final.
Nadal leads 23-14 but Federer has their last four matches including three this year all in the first quarter at the Australian Open final, Indian Wells and Miami (winng the last 5 sets!). And Roger won both previous meetings in China in 2007 and 2006.
Federer leads 10-9 on hard courts and 5-2 in hard court finals.
Nadal hasn’t beaten Federer in almost four years since the 2014 Australian Open. But Rafa comes in on a 16-match win streak (all on hard courts) and seeking a tour-best 7th title of the year and third straight.
Who wins their first meeting in Asia since 2007? The match will be played at 4:30am ET (4:30pm in Shanghai).
