Federer and Djokovic to serve it up in the Cincinatti final
Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic were actually underdogs for their respective semi-finals but they both overcame the opposition to set up what should be a thrilling finale which can be seen live on William Hill TV.
Federer knows what the ATP Cincinnati is all about as he has won it twice before and looks to make this his fourth title of the year and this would also make him the fourth player to capture at least three titles in the Cincinnati Open Era.
Djokovic meanwhile made the final of this last year where he lost to Andy Murray and he will not be wanting to finish runner up yet again. He has gone the right about it so far having not dropped a set in his four matches while Federer has lost the one.
While the world number 1 holds a 7-4 head-to-head advantage over the Serb, it is Djokovic that has won the last two times they have met and will be quietly confident of making it three in a row.
The match odds make Federer the 2/5 favourite with Djokovic available at odds of 7/4 and this looks likely it will need all three sets to get a result. Match betting is one of many markets available on the ATP Cincinatti final which can be seen live on William Hill TV.
