2004 Toronto Masters
Roger Federer v AndyRoddick


7-5, 6-3



World number one Roger Federer beat Andy Roddick 7-5, 6-3 to claim the title of the Toronto Masters tennis championship on Sunday and extend his winning streak to 23 matches.

A rematch of last month's Wimbledon final produced a similar result as Federer continued his mastery over Roddick improving his head-to-head record against his American rival to 7-1. 

With a match record of 52-4 this season there are few signs Federer is prepared to share anything.

Roddick had won his previous seven finals on the hardcourts of America, but against Federer he could find no answers.

After a close first set, Federer keep the US Open champion under constant pressure, gaining the decisive break with a stinging crosscourt forehand to go up 5-3 before holding serve to take the title.

"I'd like to congratulate Roger but you are starting to become very, very annoying," Roddick joked during the post-match ceremonies.
