2005 CINCINNATI MASTERS
ROGER FEDERER v ANDY RODDICK
When Roger Federer reaches a tournament final, he doesn't lose. Nobody knows that better than Andy Roddick.
The unflappable Federer won his 22nd straight final on Sunday, beating the exasperated American 6-3, 7-5 for the Cincinnati Masters championship and his ninth overall title this season.
Federer improved to 10-1 against Roddick, who tried every tactic but still came up short. Federer has won the last six times they've met, including the last two Wimbledon finals.
The world's top-ranked player for the last 81 weeks, Federer heads into the U.S. Open fit, relaxed and on a roll. He took time off after winning his third straight Wimbledon, looking to recharge and rest a sore foot.
He needed only one week of matches to get back in form.
``Today I got the feeling occasionally that this is great tennis again,'' Federer said.
