Shanghai Masters

Federer relishing Nadal final

Nadal battled past Marin Cilic 7-5 7-6 (7-3) in Saturday's opening semi-final, before Federer fought back from a set down to overcome Juan Martin del Potro 3-6 6-3 6-3.

The Spaniard enjoys a 23-14 head-to-head record over his great foe although each of the last four meetings have gone the way of the Swiss, including this year's Australian Open and Miami Masters finals.
