Roger Federer has won the Cincinnati Masters by beating David Ferrer 6-3 1-6 6-2 in this evening's final, sealing the 80th title of the career.

With a 4-3 lead, Federer secured the opening break of the match to allow himself to serve out the first, although he had to save three break points as the Spaniard fought hard to keep himself in the set.

Ferrer continued to pose a threat to the Swiss's serve at the start of the second, breaking his opponent twice on his way to a 4-0 lead.

Federer held serve to get on the board in the sixth game of the set, but the world number six tied the match up in the next game with a comfortable hold.
