Federer wins, Serena loses in Cincy tourney

Federer wins, Serena loses in Cincy tourney

In the women's first round, Azarenka made her first appearance here since 2015 count as she defeated Spanish veteran Carla Suarez Navarro 6-7 (5/7), 6-2, 6-4. "Even when I have to take time away, I still get something out of it", added Federer.

Both players sailed through their service games in the second set and they were headed towards the tie break when Nadal faced the first loose service game at 5-6. Game plan is very simple.

Serena Williams on Monday re-established her customary superiority, hammering Daria Gavrilova 6-1, 6-2 to reach the second round of the Cincinnati Masters in Mason, Ohio. You know, there is only so much you can do before you have to, you know, I guess, get surgery or something like that.

Having looked relaxed after extending his post Wimbledon break for a further week after skipping Toronto, World No. 2 and a seven-time champion here, Roger Federer coasted in to the third round, against Peter Gojowczyk showing no signs of rust at all.

"It's nice to have played a match so that my last match was not the Anderson match. you've kind of turned the page".

But the 36-year-old was all business Monday as she cleaned up on Australian Gavrilova, with Williams winning an 11th straight match here. "I think I always played her at her best level the matches before, so it was always tough".

"Today's start of the match was not good at all", the 31-year-old Brit said. "As the year goes on, I'll be able to get a little bit more consistency like on the practice court and on the tennis court".

Murray had hoped to build on the momentum leading into the US Open after a run to the quarter-finals of the Citi Open before he pulled out of the Washington tournament citing fatigue.

Germany's Tatjana Maria progressed to the second round, where she will take on American world number three Sloane Stephens, the defending US Open champion. Little by little I'm gaining my confidence. "We are both coming back - from injury, from motherhood - so it's something really special to play her".

Before that, the Spaniard headed to Beijing where he was one of the favorites for the men's singles gold medal and he delivered his best tennis yet again to win another big title in this historic season.

Pouille had lost his previous three matches to Murray, the last at Dubai in 2017. "I just began. Definitely at the very, very beginning", Williams said after the match. He faced no troubles on serve and he absorbed rival's forehands like no one else would, taking the strongest weapon out from the Chilean's hands.
