Federer wins Hamburg Masters

May 21, 2007

Roger Federer brought an end to Rafael Nadal's 81-match winning streak on clay on Sunday, beating the Spaniard 2-6, 6-2, 6-0 to win the final of the Hamburg Masters and give his French Open preparations the perfect boost.

The world number one, who had never before beaten the Spaniard on his favourite surface, looked to be in line for his usual humbling in the red dirt as Nadal punished his early mistakes in brutal style to take the first set with a couple of breaks.
