Title no. 5 in Cincinnati!

19.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger swept Novak Djokovic aside 6-0, 7-6 (7) today for a fifth title at the Cincinnati Masters. Roger has now also tied Rafael Nadal for the most Masters titles with 21.

"Breaking a record - always something special when that happens," Roger said.

Roger was extremely efficient today, making three out of his four break point opportunities in the opening set, not dropping a game himself. The second set was a closer issue, but Djokovic was unable to force a break point so the two took the set into a tiebreaker - with Roger claiming it nine points to seven.

This is a great boost for Roger ahead of the last grand slam of the season in the U.S. Open which starts on August 27th.

Fantastic Mr Federer! What a great win! I absolutely loved it. Novak feared you. Now for US Open. Just take one match at a time - as you yourself said in your press conference. The bookies still have Djok as favourite, but I think that's lucky. (Just my superstitious approach - better NOT to be the favourite). The only player in history, apparently, to have won an ATP 1000 without losing a set or your serve! That is just incredible.

Federer became the only man in the history of tennis to win a ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in straight sets and without dropping serve.-from the RF fan on the blog.
