RAFAEL NADAL continued his stunning run of form by crushing Roger Federer in little more than an hour to win the Internazionali d'Italia in Rome.

The Spaniard, competing in his eighth final in a row since making a comeback from a seven-month injury lay-off in February, raced to a 6-1 6-3 win in one hour and nine minutes to claim his third straight title and sixth of 2013.

It was the first time the pair, who have won 28 grand slam titles between them, have met in a final since the 2011 French Open, an encounter Nadal won, and the fifth seed showed his great rival no mercy again today.

The clay court master was at his clinical best, converting five out of six break-point opportunities, while the Swiss had to settle for one out of two.

It took their head-to-head record to 20-10 in Nadal's favour.
