23 Aug 2015 22:10
Roger Federer has defeated world number one Novak Djokovic 7-6 (7/1) 6-3 to win his seventh Cincinnati Masters title.
-
In doing so, Federer ensured that Djokovic must wait at least another year to become the first player to win all nine Masters 1000 events.
-
The Serbian, who for all of his many successes is still to win in Cincinnati, lost the first set on a tie-break and was decisively broken in the first game of the second set after a double fault, with Federer holding serve thereafter to triumph in 90 minutes.
-
After conquering Djokovic, Federer will move above Andy Murray, whom he defeated in the semi-final, to second in the world rankings, securing the number two seed spot at the US Open.
-
The 34-year-old Swiss had again used the same entertaining, aggressive tactics which had inspired him to the tournament's final.
-
During the tie-break, Federer sent an exceptional looping backhand onto the baseline to earn a 3-1 lead en route to winning 10 of the final 11 points to win the opening set in 52 minutes.
-
Federer continued to pressure Djokovic's serve and won the first three games of the second set, never looking back from there.
