Federer beat world No1 Novak Djokovic to win the Cincinnati Masters title last weekend after an impressive straight-sets victory over the Serb.

Speaking after last weekend’s win, Federer said: “Now I’ve got the confidence, I’ve got the matches, and I’m actually still feeling really fresh even after this week, because the matches have been rather short.”
