Roger Federer reigns in Cincinnati for the seventh time in his career demolishing the Serb Novak Djokovic in straight sets 7-6(1), 6-3. Novak Djokovic who went into the match as the clear favourite had absolutely no chance against the Swiss.

The first set was a close encounter between the two with both the players failing to break the serve. While Novak Djokovic who had absolutely no chance to break the Swiss serve, Federer had four opportunities to break the Serb’s serve which he failed to convert. The first set went on to the tie-breaker and it was one man who had the upper hand in the tie breaker and it was the Swiss Roger Federer. The Serb managed to win just one point in the tie-breaker which handed over the set to the Swiss.

Federer carried the momentum in the second set and was ruthless with his ground strokes. The Serb had no answers against Federer’s style of play and handed over the break pretty early in the second set and it was all over for the World no.1 as he couldn’t stage a comeback as he did against Dolgopolov. Federer went on to clinch the second set and captured his seventh Cincinnati title.

Although Federer maintained a low first serve percentage of just 57, he was absolutely dictating play and never allowed the Serb to settle down.

Roger Federer is yet to lose a final in Cincinnati which clearly shows his domination especially in this particular event. On the contrary Novak has been in Cincinnati finals on 5 occasions and he has lost them all. This is the only ATP 1000 masters which is missing in his illustrious career and his dream of winning the golden masters has been denied once again.
