In the 30th meeting between the two tennis greats, Nadal controlled the final from start to finish to win 6-1, 6-3 Sunday for his seventh Italian Open title.
Nadal improved to 20-10 in his career against Federer, and showed once again that he’ll be the player to beat when the French Open starts next Sunday.
It was Nadal’s fifth title since returning earlier this year from a seven-month layoff due to a left knee injury.
