Federer and Nadal to meet at Hamburg Final

Perhaps not many have predicted a repeated final match between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at Hamburg Masters Series 2008. However the world no. 1 and 2 proved that they still dominate despite poor performance at the beginning of the year.

It's a total relieve for many Nadal's fans out there after beating Novak Djokovic 7-5, 2-6, 2-6. It's not much about beating the Djoker to be in the final but last night's match is all about maintaining the no. 2 spot on the ATP rankings. Djokovic has been a big threat for both Nadal and Federer this year.

In that slightly more than 3 hours match, Nadal proves that he is still the King of Clay, chasing down almost anything Djokovic threw at him.

Earlier on, Federer has no problem beating Italian Andreas Seppi 6-3, 6-1 to book a place in the final.

So who will win tonight? Personally I just want to see Nadal win this and widen the gap further away from Djokovic in the ATP Rankings.
