Federer and Rafa have one of the greatest rivalries in tennis history and have faced off 28 times, with 19 of those matches coming in the final round of a tournament.
Nadal holds an 18-10 advantage in the series and is 13-6 with a championship on the line. However, Federer has a 2-1 lead over the Spaniard in rare grass court meetings.
The Swiss star will build on that and make it 3-1 when he wins the 2012 Gerry Weber Open, a tournament he traditionally dominates. It will be his sixth singles title at the event.
