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.

Here are the highlights from the match:

birdy Says:

If you listen to the last seconds of the Fish interview, now there’s an opportunity for a mental couch. Fish still doesnt believe he is in the mix as a USOpen contender.

Mardy, you’re there.

Anna Says:

Happy for Roger to have defended here, but Mardy is playing some awesome tennis and certainly has an opportunity to go deep at the USO. Otherwise, why not play New Haven.

Thomas Says:

Great to see Federer win the title after a long gap.. He had his own ups and downs but not the down for so long in his career.. This win proves he is still the best and back on track.. Never write Roger off no matter what.. Way to go Roger!
