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.

Hello Roger
Resonating across the 6am news bulletins this am.--"Roger Federer the no 1 male tennis player in the world wins his 5th Cincinnati title"
Brilliant--Roger Federer gets the trophy,Novak Djokovic the bagel.Congratulations on winning your 21st Masters and 76th title overall.
Your tennis for the whole week has been superb--drops shots, volleys serving and that very effective BH return from the deuce court frequently within 1 to 2 feet of the baseline--just everything better

Yuppie !!! You won your fifth Cincinnati Masters ! Congratulations on a stunning finals match. You played extremely well. Djoko did not have a chance (but, he can never be underestimated). Applause to you adaptation making the transition from grass to hard court with environmental climatic changes and timezones, especially when you think that two weeks ago you were in England. 21 is a nice number, don't you think ?

Interesting looking trophy.

Now... on the New York.

With you always
