Western & Southern Open—Cincinnati, Ohio

No. 2 seed Roger Federer poured in an impressive performance on Sunday in Cincinnati, Ohio, defeating top seed Novak Djokovic 7-6(1), 6-3. Not facing a break point throughout the straight set affair, Federer didn’t lose a set during the entire tournament and also claimed his 87th career title. Federer will move back to No. 2 in the world on Monday and will be seeded behind Djokovic at the US Open. Djokovic, who was attempting to win his first-ever title in Cincinnati and complete his Masters series collection, heads into New York with two losses in Masters 1000 finals. The Serb also dropped a three set contest to Andy Murray in Montreal last week.
