Cincinnati Open: Roger Federer downs Stan Wawrinka to reach semi-finals

first_imgRoger Federer produced sheer masterclass against his Swiss compatriot Stan Wawrinka on Saturday in what was a tightly-contested quarter-final at the Cincinnati Masters to reach the semi-final.Federer, who has won a record seven titles at Cincinnati, improved his head-to-head record over Wawrinka to 21-3 after wearing him down 6-7(2) 7-6(6) 6-2 with his brilliant shot-making skills.The match started with a low-key atmosphere after Wawrinka took the first set with a dominating performance in the tiebreak. However, the crowd was in for a treat and the atmosphere turned into a cracking one when Federer took the second set after fighting it out in the tiebreak.Such was a tenacity of both men that the first service break of the match came in the third and deciding set. Play was halted two points into the third set due to thunderstorm but the rain spared Cincinnati for once and play resumed shortly after.Even though Federer looked unhappy with the halt having finally found rhythm, as the play resumed, Federer turned up with a completely different class and stamped his authority over Wawrinka.One step closer to #8Seven-time champ @rogerfederer battles his way back to win all-Swiss battle with Stan Wawrinka 6-7(2) 7-6(6) 6-2 and reach his *EIGHTH* semifinal in Cincinnati. #CincyTennis pic.twitter.com/BIealPfftrWestern & Southern Open (@CincyTennis) August 18, 2018While Federer narrowly avoided an early exit, another high seed was sent packing earlier in the day as number four Juan Martin del Potro fell to diminutive Belgian David Goffin 7-6(5), 7-6(4).advertisementGoffin closed out a tight match with a backhand winner down the baseline.His reward is a Saturday evening semi-final against Federer, while the other last four clash will match former world number one Novak Djokovic of Serbia against Croatia’s Marin Cilic.Also read – Cincinnati Open: Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova in semi-finalIt was a busy day for 10th seeded Djokovic, who came from behind to oust defending champion Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the conclusion of a third round match carried over from Thursday.Only a couple of hours later, Djokovic stopped Milos Raonic 7-5, 4-6, 6-3, improving his career record to a perfect 9-0 against the Canadian.ROARing into the semifinals…@DjokerNole is back in the #CincyTennis SFs for the *SIXTH* time with 7-5 4-6 6-3 win over Raonic.Former champ Cilic stands in the way of his return to the title match. pic.twitter.com/nxHImd65PEWestern & Southern Open (@CincyTennis) August 17, 2018″I’m very pleased with my fighting spirit and staying mentally tough to overcome deficits in both matches,” Djokovic said.”Obviously the match against Dimitrov yesterday didn’t start so well for me. He started tremendously well. We were not the only ones (dealing with interruptions), but it just makes it harder, because you’re warming up, you’re cooling down.”We went home around 10.30, came back this morning again to play him, and then (had a) couple hours of rest.Also read – Serena Williams worst loss came right after her half sister’s killer was freed”And to go back on the court again against Raonic, who was serving 140-plus miles (per hour) from the first game, that got me going, for sure, from the beginning.”Former champion Cilic made his way to the semi-finals with a 7-6(5), 3-6, 6-4 third-round win over Russia’s Karen Khachanov before toppling Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta 7-6(7), 6-4.See you in the semifinals, @cilic_marin!The 2016 champion returns to the final four with 7-6(7) 6-4 win over Pablo Carreno Busta.
