In one of the better played men’s finals of year, Roger Federer beat Mardy Fish today 67, 76, 64 at the Western & Southern Financial Group Tennis Masters in Cincinnati.
The match was full of drama of great play from both players. While Federer was the victor, Fish did himself proud with an excellent performance all week.
If you missed the match or want to re-live the highlights, I’ve inlcuded the relevant videos below.
The win keeps Federer at the No. 2 rankings meaning he will be the No. 2 seed at the US Open. Mardy Fish, whose ranking wasn’t even strong enough to get him directly into the tournament, moved up to No. 21 in the World. Fish was scheduled to play in New Haven but withdrew.
