Western & Southern Open Final – Best Bets
(2) ROGER FEDERER – (10) NOVAK DJOKOVIC
Djokovic is 23-22 against Federer and the last time Federer won against the Serb was in London ATP Finals back in 2015. Their last meeting came in Australian Open 2016 in the semifinals where Djokovic destroyed Federer in a magnificent match 3-1. Djokovic has been struggling for the last year with a elbow injury and lack of confidence but won his first title for the year and his 13th Grand Slam in Wimbledon in July and is almost back at his very best. Federer is 29-4 on the tour this year with 3 titles (Australian Open, Rotterdam and Stuttgart) and this is his first tournament since his shock defeat against Kevin Anderson in the Wimbledon quarterfinals. Its a really tough call to pick the winner here. Federer has lost 9 matches in total the last two years and 5 after having held match points. If he plays at his highest level today it might be enough and he hasnt lost serve in Cincinnati for the last 96 service games.. Djokovic is in his 6th Cincy final and should have all the motivation in the world to clinch his first title, beat Federer again and show the world that he is the best tennis player once again. My money goes to Djokovic winning and becoming the first one with a “Golden Masters” having won all 9 Masters 1000 tournaments.
