Roger Federer takes metro ride in Shanghai, fans get insane

The results of draw for the 2017 Shanghai Rolex Masters announced at a special ceremony on Oct. 7 2017

Looming in Shanghai is a potential clash in the final between Federer and Nadal, whose friendly rivalry has blossomed anew this year as they force the next generation to wait their turn.

Federer has won five titles thus far this campaign including two Grand Slam titles - the Australian Open and a record breaking eighth Wimbledon title. It's nice to be in a lovely vehicle and everything, but it's nice to go do that.' Federer enjoyed his experience and many fans recognized him.

However, "The Maestro" has revealed he gave up hope of reclaiming the crown after Rafael Nadal won the US Open.

But Nadal has proved impossible to topple, with the Spanaird's US Open triumph in September cementing his No 1 status.

Federer, however, refuses to be disappointed, and is instead focusing on being happy to be fit and winning at his age. I used to take either tram, train, or bus to practice on a daily basis, and then also a lot of the train until about 20 years old, going to tournaments even to Italy, even internationally.

The Cardinals didn't do a awful job of getting pressure on Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz on Sunday, but it didn't matter. Through five games, he has 16 catches for 276 yards (17.3 average) and three TDs, which is also a career-high.

Federer will have his next chance this week, when both him and Nadal will compete at the Shanghai Masters.

The Spaniard comes to Shanghai's hardcourt having dispatched Australian Nick Kyrgios in straight sets to win the China Open in Beijing on Sunday.

"I'm playing just the big tournaments now", Federer said. "He had no need to go to Asia and push his body to the limit but Rafa is Rafa and a real professional".
