Cincinnati: webnews http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5232-cincinnati-webnews.html Cincinnati Masters: Roger Federer denies Novak Djokovic history bid (CNN)Roger Federer secured... Cincinnati Masters: Roger Federer denies Novak Djokovic history bid (CNN)

Roger Federer secured victory and denied Novak Djokovic a little bit of history with an exquisite performance in the final of the Cincinnati Masters Sunday.
The Serb was hoping to become the first singles player to win all nine ATP Masters 1000 titles.
But a stunning show from the 17-time grand slam-winning FedEx at the Lindner Family Tennis Center ensured it was he who would instead extend his own record of victories at the prestigious Cincinnati event to seven.
The Swiss, who now moves back to number two in the world, took just one hour and 30 minutes to win 7-6 (7/1) 6-3 in the afternoon heat.
Although Federer broke Djokovic only once, he always looked the more comfortable of the pair on serve and was dominant in the first set tie break.
"I tried to really mix it up on his second serve and I was hoping to serve good enough myself to keep me out of trouble," Federer said when speaking with ESPN post match.
"He had that one bad game at the beginning of the second set, which made the difference in the match.
Incredibly, the triumph marks the 87th ATP Tour win of Federer's trophy-laden career.



Roger Federer's masterclass display defeats Novak Djokovic in major U.S. Open warmup (SBNation.com)

Perfection sometimes in tennis is seeing Roger Federer in full flight.

That was certainly the case once again Sunday as the Swiss legend dominated Novak Djokovic 7-6 (1), 6-3 to secure his seventh Western & Southern Open title in the final major warmup for the U.S. Open. It was a vintage Federer masterclass, made more impressive by the fact that he was immaculate on serve against arguably the greatest return of all time. The world No. 1 did not earn a single break point chance against Federer, who finished his five-match week in Mason, Ohio, without being broken once in 49 service games.

The tone for Federer's domination was set in the opening set, as he immediately made Djokovic uncomfortable on serve with aggressive returns and tremendous racquet head speed on both his forehand and backhand. But the Serbian ace showed why he's been the premier player in the game in 2015, holding off Federer’s relentless assault and stepping up in his own service games to not be broken as well.



Roger Federer wins seventh Cincinnati Masters title (BBC)

Roger Federer beat world number one Novak Djokovic to win his seventh Cincinnati Masters title on Sunday.
The 34-year-old Swiss, who knocked out Britain's Andy Murray in the semi-final, recorded a 7-6 (7-1) 6-3 win.
Djokovic lost the first set on a tie break, and the 28-year-old Serb then double faulted at break point in his first service game of the second set.
Federer, who will now be the number two seed at the US Open, held serve to win in one hour 30 minutes.
"We really get the best out of each other," said Federer, who made it an 87th tour-level title.
"We have improved a lot playing against each other over the years.
"It's very special for me. I will try my best to come back for many years to come."
With the victory, Federer denied Djokovic from completing the set of all nine ATP Masters titles and took a 21-20 edge in career head-to-head meetings.
"I really hope he (Djokovic) can win here one day," added Federer. "He deserves it."



Roger Federer Defeats Novak Djokovic in Straight Sets to Clinch Seventh Cincinnati Masters Title (International Business Times)

Roger Federer has always been on top of his game during the Cincinnati Masters and it was no different this season as he clinched his seventh Cincinnati title after defeating Novak Djokovic in the finals of the competition on Sunday.

There seems to be some deep chemistry between Federer and Cincinnati Masters as the Swiss player has not lost a single finals match in the competition. His record now stands at 7-0, while it is completely opposite for Djokovic, who has finished runners-up five times and is yet to win the Cincinnati Masters.



Tennis: Federer, Serena repeat in Cincinnati


Roger Federer jutted his right index finger toward the blue sky to celebrate his latest Cincinnati title. He would have needed both hands to count all of them.

Federer remained perfect in Cincinnati finals, winning an unprecedented seventh championship on Sunday while denying Novak Djokovic the one title that always eludes him. Federer never faced a break point during a 7-6 (1), 6-3 victory at the Western & Southern Open in Mason, Ohio.

"I don’t know how many years I can come back, but I’ll try my best to be here many more years to come," Federer said.

Roger loses tough final in Wimbledon http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5207-roger-verliert-umkaempften-wimbledon-final.html Novak Djokovic ended Roger's quest for an eigth Wimbledon title today. Our champ was defeated... Novak Djokovic ended Roger's quest for an eigth Wimbledon title today. Our champ was defeated 6-7(1), 7-6(10), 4-6, 3-6 by the defending champion.

The two best tennis players of the world showed breathtaking tennis, especially throughout the first two sets. Roger played aggressively, came forward to the net fairly often and successfully - as Djokovic scored on the points from the base-line. 

It was a match that could go either way, just as expected. The first two sets had to be decided in a tie-breaker, the first going to Djokovic and the second - with a thrilling final phase when Roger managed to just turn it around - to Roger. Our champ then got under pressure early as he dropped his serve in sets 3 and 4. Unfortunately his serves were not quite as powerful as on Friday against Murray and he committed too many unforced errors. Djokovic was in charge now.

After almost three hours Roger had to postpone his eighth triumph in Wimbledon to the coming season. ]]>
