ATP - US OPEN DRAW

Roger will play his first match at the US Open 2009 against Devin Britton. The 18 year-old American is 1m93 tall and currently holds position 1364 in the world ranking. After that Roger could meet Germany's Simon Greul (ATP 64) or a qualifier. Later on, assuming that the seeded players proceed, he would play Lleyton Hewitt (31), Tommy Robredo (14) or James Blake (21), then Robin Söderling (12) or Nikolay Davydenko (8). Novak Djokovic (4) or Andy Roddick (5) would follow on the path to the semi-finals.

A sixth consecutive title would make Roger the first player, after Bill Tilden in the 1920s, to have achieved such a record!

Roger Federer wins Cincinnati Masters title (Los Angeles Times)


With a dominant first set on Sunday, Roger Federer showed that he's in top-of-the-world form after his time off to become a father. A 6-1, 7-5 victory over Novak Djokovic brought him the Cincinnati Masters title, his first championship since his twin girls were born last month.

"That's the special part, especially winning for the first time as a dad," Federer said. "It gets me going emotionally a little bit, because I know it's been a wonderful summer."

What the Cincinnati Masters Means For Roger Federer (Bleacher Report)

Until halfway through this year, the Great Swiss seemed to struggle in the Masters Series events. Unlike in the majors, in the Masters his opponents need only win two sets against him; still a tough task, but immensely easier than winning three (ask Tommy Haas, Andy Roddick, Juan Martin del Potro, or Tomas Berdych).

Unlike third- or fourth-tier events, the best competition is usually at the Masters tourneys.That Federer could win this one just eight days prior to the US Open, in the process dominating two of his most troublesome rivals, must make the rest of the top 10 shudder.

Federer, Hot; Despite Diaper Duty (Wall Street Journal)

The suave Swiss champion has enjoyed a magnificent summer—a first-ever French Open title; an epic, record-setting victory at Wimbledon over Andy Roddick as Pete Sampras looked on in fancy clothes; and then his wife, Mirka, gave birth to twin girls in late July. Yes, there was that hiccup recently in Montreal, when Mr. Federer improbably fell to France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, but give Pops a break. Double diaper-duty hangover.

After this week's tear through the Cincinnati Masters tournament, there will be no doubts about Mr. Federer's return to Federocity. On Saturday he stopped Andy Murray—the world's new No. 2 and a player who has given Mr. Federer great discomfort—6-2, 7-6. In Sunday's final, he blazed fourth-seed Novak Djokovic, 6-1, 7-5. Mr. Federer is certain to be the No. 1 seed when the U.S. Open begins Aug. 31, unless, of course, Brett Favre decides to join the ATP.

Federer gets first victory as a dad (Globe and Mail)

World No. 1 Roger Federer defeated fourth-seeded Novak Djokovic 6-1, 7-5 to win the Cincinnati Masters title yesterday and cement his status as favourite for the coming U.S. Open.

Federer set the tone in the second game of the match, when Djokovic saved six break points but still couldn't ward off the break of serve.

"A good start always helps," Federer said. "That was the case today." When Djokovic finally held serve in the sixth game of the match he could only look at the sky and smile.

Federer in form, wins Cincy Masters (News & Observer)

With a dominant first set on Sunday, Roger Federer showed that he's in top-of-the-world form after his time off to become a father. A 6-1, 7-5 victory over Novak Djokovic brought him the Cincinnati Masters title in Mason, Ohio, his first championship since his twin girls were born last month.

"That's the special part, especially winning for the first time as a dad," Federer said. "It gets me going emotionally a little bit, because I know it's been a wonderful summer."

His stellar season can get even better beginning next week at the U.S. Open. The Swiss star has won the last five titles there, and his performance on Sunday suggested he's fully capable of another. Djokovic hadn't lost a set all week but was never in the title match.

ATP - ROGER CAPTURES THIRD CINCI TITLE!

Roger won his final against Novak Djokovic 6-1, 7-5 today to become just the fourth player in the Open Era history of the tournament in Cincinnati to win the title three times. Our champ has now captured the title in 2009, 2007 and 2005.

Roger showed a brilliant performance today and was never troubled by Djokovic. He had to fight in the second set as his opponent took a 3-0 lead, breaking in the second game. But Roger came back strong in his typical way, breaking back twice. Serving for the match, Roger did not drop a single point to complete the perfect warm-up for the US Open which begins in a week on August 31.

Roger dedicated the title to his twin girls during the prize giving ceremony. It is the first title he has captured as a dad.

ATP - ROGER SEEKS THIRD CINCI TITLE

Roger defeated defending champion Andy Murray 6-2, 7-6 (8) today, stopping a four-match losing streak to the 22-year-old Scot.

"I know my game's on, and when my game's on, I know I can beat any player in the world," Roger commented. Our champ was in control during the first set, breaking Murray’s serve twice and nearly breaking it a third time when the Scot saved three break points to win his second game. Roger closed the first set with a successful challenge along the right sideline.
Murray never led in either set, but kept the second set within a game at all times and was able to force the tiebreaker.

Roger will play the winner of Saturday night’s second semifinal between world No. 3 Rafael Nadal and No. 4 Novak Djokovic in the final Sunday afternoon. Roger will be seeking his third win here after titles in 2005 and 2007.

ATP - ROGER CRUISES INTO SEMIS

Roger clearly defeated Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 6-4 in the quarter final in Cincinnati today. Our champ was never troubled by the Australian, breaking once in each set.

Roger will now meet second-ranked Andy Murray. The two players have met eight times before, the Scot registering six wins. "He has been more or less the best player in the world on hard courts this year," Roger said. "I know it's going to be a very tough match. I just have to come out with my game plan and hope it works."

ATP - ROGER FIGHTS PAST FERRER

Roger had a scare at the Cincinnati Masters today before recovering to beat Spaniard David Ferrer 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

"This win today was perfect," Roger said. "It gives me another opportunity to play another match. I'm further into the tournament, which normally makes me play better."

Despite an early break by Roger, the first set clearly went to Ferrer. Roger fought back to level as he managed to reduce the number of errors. He then went down an early break in the third set before immediately breaking back - another break and a last service game to love then secured him a spot amongst the last eight. He will next play the winner of the third round match between former world number one Lleyton Hewitt and Sam Querrey of the United States.

ATP - ROGER MOVES ON EASILY

Roger mastered the first step of the ATP-1000 tournament in Cincinnati with ease. He held serve throughout a 6-3, 7-5 win over José Acasuso, scoring a total of 14 aces and losing just five points when his first serve was in.

“I think it was a good match for me today,” Roger said. “I’m happy to still be playing."

Roger's serve was near to perfect today, Acasuso had a hard time getting into the match. At 4-3 in the first set Roger had only dropped three points and the first set was over after just 27 minutes. Roger then saw himself confronted with excellent serves and seized the last opportunity to break his opponent and win the second set 7-5.

Roger will now meet David Ferrer who elminated Roger's fellow countryman Stanislas Wawrinka in the first round. Roger has won all matches against Ferrer so far, dropping just one single set.

ATP - ROGER OUT IN MONTREAL

Roger lost his match against Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarterfinals of the ATP Montreal Masters.

The seventh-seeded Tsonga beat our champ in the tiebreaker for a 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-6 (3) victory.

Roger had trouble to keep up with Tsonga in the first set and lost the tiebreak. Our champ won the second set clearly.

Roger led the third set 5-1 until Tsonga broke his serve twice. Tsonga took the lead using two aces.

Roger double-faulted on matchpoint and lost his first match after a 22-match winning streak.

ATP - ROGER WINS SWISS MEETING

Roger claimed a third- round win over fellow Swiss and Davis Cup partner Stanislas Wawrinka at the Montreal Masters. The 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory was his 21st consecutive match win.

"It was a tense match, you can never tell until it's over," Roger said. "Stan was serving really well. We played at a high level."

It is only a few months ago (in Monte Carlo in April) that Stan, who won the doubles gold medal at the Beijing Olympic alongside Roger, had beaten our champ. He saved four match points in the tiebreaker this time but then missed a low volley at the net to exit after one and three-quarters hours of play.

With his win Roger led the field into a totally new situation: it is the first time since the rankings began in 1973 that the top eight players in the world have all reached the quarters at the same ATP event!

Roger next meets Jo-Wilfried Tsonga from France.

ATP - ROGER IN ROUND THREE

Roger defeated Canadian outsider Frederic Niemeyer to advance 7-6 (3), 6-4 in the second round of the ATP Montreal Masters.

"I'm very happy with my game. I reacted well in my first match back," Roger commented. "I played the big points well. I'm very pleased. I'm happy to be back after the long break. We played at a very high level. Frederic has a big serve and is tough."

Our number one had a bit of adjusting to do. As the first set failed to produce a break, Roger then took the opener in a tie-break 7-3. Niemeyer continued to battle in the second until Roger finally wore down the Canadian, earning the only break of the match to go up 4-3 before wrapping it up after 86 minutes.

Next up is either fellow countryman Stanislas Wawrinka (ATP 22) or Andrej Golubew (ATP 66).

After the wonderful experiences over the past days it is my pleasure to inform you that I will be participating in the Rogers Cup in Montreal which starts on Monday. As I was able to find enough time to practice these past weeks I must say that I feel fit and full of energy.
