Roger Federer was this evening crowned ATP World Tour Finals 2010 Champion after winning an enthralling final from his rival, and current world number one, Rafael Nadal.
Federer lifted the title by winning 6-3 3-6 6-1 as he enjoyed another fine evening on one of his favourite surfaces.
Nadal put the opening set behind him to come back into this match strongly and level at one set all before Federer really pulled out the stops to run away with the third decisive set 6-1.
The result between the best two players in the World leaves a mouthwatering prospect for 2011, with very little between the two brighter lights of World tennis, on any surface.
Federer ends the season as he began it in Australia – raising yet another Champion’s trophy. At 29, the most decorated player in tennis history looks like he is not finished yet and, on tonight’s evidence, he looks set to collect still more silverware in 2011.
