<![CDATA[Roger Federer cemented his position as the form player heading into the final tennis grand slam event of the year, the US Open, with a stunning victory over Novak Djokovic in the final of the Cincinnati Masters. The Swiss ace won 7-6, 6-3 to claim his seventh Cincinnati title and secure the number two seed spot for the US Open. This ensures he will avoid Djokovic in the draw up until the final – making him a great each way bet to lift his sixth US open crown and seventeenth grand slam trophy overall. Having beaten Andy Murray in the semi-final here, and destroyed him in the last four at Wimbledon, Federer can also claim a great record over Djokovic having won 21 of their 40 previous encounters. "We really get the best out of each other," Federer said after the final. "We have improved a lot playing against each other over the years. The bookmakers have since slashed his odds to 5.5 to win at Flushing Meadows, although should he receive a favourable draw an each way bet (which would pay out at just over 2.00) just for reaching the final looks great value. Either way, the men’s draw looks jam-packed with intrigue and excitement.
