Roger Federer surprised the odds makers on Saturday by taking out Andy Murray in the semifinals of the Cincinnati Masters. Federer plumped up his head-to-head vs. the Scot to 3-6, breaking a four-match losing streak.
Federer refused to admit that the win helps him going into the US Open, but he did sound darn confident in his post-match presser:

Federer’s on-court interview:
Roger faces another no-love-lost nemesis on Sunday, taking on Novak Djokovic in the finals. Nole scored a much-needed win against Rafael Nadal in Saturday’s evening semi and is looking to be in fierce form.
Federer is 7-4 over Djokovic, but Nole’s won their past two meetings – in Rome and Miami. It’s going to be a good one!
