Mason, USA, Aug 18 (efe-epa).- Swiss Roger Federer and Serbian Novak Djokovic, second and tenth seeded respectively, will return for the final of the Cincinnati Masters 1000 in Mason, Ohio, on Sunday, for another duel between the two former world number ones.

Mason, USA, Aug 18 (efe-epa).- Swiss Roger Federer and Serbian Novak Djokovic, second and tenth seeded respectively, will return for the final of the Cincinnati Masters 1000 in Mason, Ohio, on Sunday, for another duel between the two former world number ones.

The men from Basel and Belgrade will meet in the final round of a tournament for the first time since 2015, when the Serb beat the Swiss in the ATP Finals (former Masters Cup), it will be the 18th time the two tennis greats will fight for a title.

Roger Federer, number two in the ATP rankings, made it to his eighth final in Cincinnati on Saturday after his semifinal rival, Belgian David Goffin, who was the eleventh seeded, retired during the second set.

The Swiss had already won the first set in a tie break, 7-6 (3), and the score in the second set was a 1-1 draw when Goffin left the game due to a shoulder injury.

Federer, who reaches the 150th final of his career on the ATP circuit and is looking for his 99th ATP title, has won seven times in Cincinnati, the same seven times he reached the final round of the competition: 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2015.

In three of those, 2009, 2012 and 2015, his opponent was Novak Djokovic, the same as on Sunday, the same who has defeated him in 12 of the 18 finals that they have faced, including the last, the ATP Finals in 2015, when the Belgrade won 6-3 and 6-4.

The Serb, who is returning to the circuit's top spots after losing the world No.1 in November 2016 has now reached his sixth final in Cincinnati, where he lost the previous five times.

The Western & Southern Open, the official name of the tournament, is the only missing Masters 1000 in the showcase of Djokovic.

On Saturday he won in three sets, 6-4, 3-6 and 6-3, after two and a half hours of play, to the Croatian Marin Cilic, seventh seeded and winner of this competition in 2016.

Sunday's match, in search of the 70th title of his career, will be his third final of 2018, after winning at Wimbledon and losing in Queens.

Meanwhile, it will be the sixth final of the year for Roger Federer. Three of the games played so far ended in the title, at the Australian Open, Rotterdam and Stuttgart, in Indian Wells and Halle he lost.
