Tennis: Rafael Nadal outclasses Roger Federer in Rome Masters final

ROME (AP) - After all these years, Rafael Nadal still knows how to dominate Roger Federer.

In the 30th meeting between the two tennis greats, the Spaniard controlled the final from start to finish to win 6-1, 6-3 for his seventh Rome Masters/Italian Open title on Sunday.

He improved to 20-10 in his career against Federer, and showed once again that he will be the player to beat when the French Open starts next Sunday.

It was his fifth title since returning earlier this year from a seven-month layoff due to a left knee injury.
