After a tight first set, Federer was outplayed and outgunned by the world No. 1, beaten 7-6(4) 6-3 6-3 as the Spaniard set up a final with another Swiss, Stanislas Wawrinka.Feeding off the influence of coach Stefan Edberg, who joined his team at the beginning of the year, Federer said he planned to take the game to Nadal and move up at every opportunity.Federer said he handed the advantage to Nadal by not doing enough on his return games and needed to win the first set.Federer will now drop to eighth in the world rankings but said he was pleased how he had been able to play freely over the whole tournament, having struggled with a back problem for much of 2013 .
