Roger Federer wins Cincinnati Masters

Roger Federer defeated Mardy Fish 6-7(5), 7-6(1), 6-4 in 2 hours and 40 minutes to win his second straight Cincinnati Masters championship and fourth overall.

He won the Cincinnati title in 2005, 2007 and 2009 and became only the second player to win the title four times, joining Mats Wilander. And he is the first player to win back-to-back titles in Cincinnati since Andre Agassi in 1995-96.

"I've been playing well the past couple weeks, and today was just another proof that I'm playing really well," said Federer. "I thought I played an excellent match today. I had huge belief that I was going to win today from the first point until the end. That sometimes can make a bit of a difference. Then I was positive all the way through because I felt I was playing well, even though I lost the first set. So I never got down on myself and doubted myself. I think that reflected in the game as well."


"I thought I played well the whole match through," assessed Federer. "I don't think I played better in the second or third set. I thought the first set was the one I really should have won and ended up losing, so I think it was a close match. Could have gone either way. I had a tough moment staring at one set down and break point in the second set. You think you're playing a good match, but you might lose 6 and 4. I hung tough and made him work hard and was able to come across the finish line faster than him."

Wildcard entrant Fish, who had won recent titles in Newport and Atlanta said:

“If I were to change anything, I would have tried to play a little more aggressive on his serve games, maybe on some second serves. He must have served 65 per cent at least. That's not very many looks.”




In the doubles final, Bob and Mike Bryan won their 64th career doubles title, beating Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi 6-3, 6-4.

“You never want to be satisfied; you always want to keep focused on how you can get better,” said Bob. “Right now we’re focusing on a big summer and it felt great (breaking the titles record in Los Angeles), people have been talking about it for a couple of years.”

Added Mike: “I think a weight’s been lifted since we broke the record. It was playing on our minds, we wanted to do it at Wimbledon, but we’re really happy that the pressure’s released and it’s shown in our play in the past few weeks. We walked into this match and we kind of had nothing to lose. It feels great that we've secured a small part tennis history. For us, the rest is icing on the cake.”
