2015 CINCY: Federer-Djokovic XLI in the Men's Final Tomorrow

For the fifth time in 2015 Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are meeting on the ATP Tour, this time in the finals of the ATP Cincinnati Masters, a tournament where Federer is the 6-time (and current) champion and Djokovic has never been ultimately victorious despite reaching four finals.
The two have met 40 times overall and are tied at 20 wins apiece but this year Djokovic has won the last three times the two have played, all of which were in the finals of important tournaments: ATP Indian Wells Masters, ATP Rome Masters and the Wimbledon Men's Championships.

In the semifinals Federer beat Andy Murray in straight sets 6-4 7-6(6)  after Djokovic outlasted Aleksandr Dolgopolov 4-6 7-6(5) 6-2. In the final tomorrow Federer has a good chance to get revenge for his losses to Djokovic earlier in the year. He is 6-0 in Cincinnati finals while Djokovic is 0-4. Last week, Djokovic lost the final of the ATP Canadian Masters to Andy Murray after beat him 8 consecutive times, so despite the fact he has had Federer's number recently does not necessarily mean the World #1 will be successful.

MadProfessah's prediction: Federer.

Did not even face a breakpoint in the entire tournament - an astonishing statistic.
Now as to the USO, they will be at opposite ends of the draw, like in Cincy as Roger reclaims #2 ranking with the win today.
Nos as to Serena...
