Federer obliterated Nadal, 6-3, 6-0, in only 61 minutes — an incredibly quick match especially considering how much Nadal slows down play between points. The three games Nadal managed to win represents the fewest either has won against the other in their 26 meetings (though Federer did win only four in a best-of-five match in the 2008 French Open final). Although he still trails his career head-to-head matchup against Nadal, 17-9, the victory improves Federer’s record in indoor matches against Nadal to 4-0.

Federer did not face a single break point on his serve, and gobbled up both Nadal’s serve, winning a stunning 53 percent of points off Nadal’s first serve. Federer’s 28 winners septupled Nadal’s 4.
