Federer makes Ohio semis
MASON, Ohio—Roger Federer beat Andy Murray 6-3, 7-5 on Friday night to advance to the semifinals in the Western & Southern Open, a tournament he has won an unprecedented five times. He’ll face Canada’s Milos Raonic.
The second-seeded Federer was on the offensive from the first point as he evened their career series at 11 wins apiece and showed he’s going to be tough to beat.
“I’m very happy with how my level of play has now sort of installed itself,” Federer said.
