Federer-Nadal. Fedal. Possibly what any tennis fan will call a cherry on the cake. A fourth meeting this year for Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal is on the cards, as they gear up for tomorrow’s finals in Shanghai. 2017 has given Tennis fans enough reasons to remember with the rise of the two legends of the sport, but it seems that more is in store for us.
Rafael Nadal got past Marin Cilic in two tight sets, while Roger Federer had to battle past the Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro in three sets.
While Federer and Nadal have a head to head of 14-23 respectively against each other, it is Roger Federer who is leading 3-0 in their matches in 2017. With Nadal’s incredible form, it’ll be certainly difficult for Roger to break him down this time around. The Spaniard will look to extend his 15 game winning streak while cementing his position as the player to end 2017 on the #1 spot.
Here’s how twitter reacted to the big news.
