‘History Maker’ Djokovic Beats Federer To Win First Cincinnati Masters Title

Former World number one Novak Djokovic reached a new landmark on Sunday night after he became the first man to win all the nine ATP Masters 1000 titles.

Djokovic, 31, achieved the feat by beating Roger Federer 6-4 6-4 in the Cincinnati Masters final to win his first title in Ohio at the sixth time of asking.

The world number 10 had previously lost five times in the final with three of those coming against Federer.

While speaking about his feat, the 13-time Grand Slam champion said: “It’s a very special moment.”

“It’s the first time I get to stand with a winning trophy in Cincinnati.” The Serbian added.

Seven-time winner Federer, 37, had earlier congratulated him on the feat.

In his words, the 20-time Grand Slam winner said: “Congratulations to Novak for your amazing effort not just this week, but throughout your whole career, it is an amazing achievement.”

“It’s been a great week, tough on the players but we had a fun time.” The Swiss legend concluded.
