Novak Djokovic wins his 2nd title of the year (including Wimbledon) and his 70th career title. Novak has made history by being the first man in ATP history to win all 9 Masters Series 1000 titles in his career with this win in Cincinnati. His prize money haul this year is an astonishing $5.4M and an enormous $115.3M in his career. His match record this year thus far stands at 33-10 and 816-173 for his career.

Djokovic said on court following the match:

"Obviously it's a very special moment to stand here for the first time with the winning trophy here in Cincinnati. The hard times I went through, it's been a rollercoaster ride in my career with injury, taking time off and having a surgery earlier this year. This seems a bit unreal to be back at this level."

Keep up the good work Novak!!!

NEXT WEEK ON THE ATP TOUR: Winston-Salem, NC - 250. The top two seeds are David Goffin and Pablo Carreno Busta.
