Federer and Nestor use their Wilson Six-One rackets to hit their 60’s
Roger Federer used his Wilson [K]Six-One Tour racket to take his 61st ATP Tour singles title as fellow Wilson player Daniel Nestor used his [K]Six-One 95 racket to take his 62nd ATP Tour doubles title in Cincinnati.
World #1 Roger Federer captured his 4th ATP Tour title of the year as he defeated Djokovic 6-1 7-5 in the Cincinnati final. This victory not only marked Roger’s 3rd Western & Southern Group Masters in Cincinnati title win, but also represents Roger’s 16th career ATP Tour Masters title, second only to Agassi’s 17.
“I think the special part is winning for the first time as a dad,” said Federer, a father to twin girls. “It’s a great thing. It gets me going emotionally a little bit, because I know it’s been a wonderful summer.”
Federer has been No. 1 in the ATP Tour Rankings for 244 weeks, which puts him fourth all-time, behind Pete Sampras (286), Lendl (270) and Connors (268).
In Cincinnati doubles action, Daniel Nestor and Zimonjic saved eight match points in the Match tie-break to beat defending champions Bryan Brothers 3-6, 7-6(2), 15-13 at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters.
Daniel Nestor and Zimonjic improved to 44-10 as a team for the 2009 ATP Tour season as they took their 8th title of the year in Cincinnati.
Daniel Nestor now owns 62 career ATP Tour doubles titles and 4 Cincinnati titles.
“Roger and Daniel both have had memorable summers and we are proud to have them lead the Wilson Team,” said Massimo Calvelli. “Reaching 60 plus titles is not an easy feat and it is great to see them both excel and continue to hit career milestones. We look forward to a thrilling US Open!”
