World no. 3 Roger Federer expressed his delight in winning his 80th career title at the Cincinnati Masters on Sunday, defeating David Ferrer 6-3, 1-6, 6-2. The Swiss now proceeds to the final Grand Slam of the season after bagging his 16th win without a loss against Ferrer for over an 11-year period. Federer added his third title for the year to those he got in Halle and Dubai early in 2014.

Only Ivan Lendl with 94 titles and Jimmy Connors with 109 titles have more ATP titles than Federer, who now has 80 and Federer claimed that his victory isn't for the mantelpiece anymore but for his family.

One of the remarkable things about the Swiss tennis superstar is the fact that he can function as an elite tennis player at age 33 while leading a normal family life as his priority.

"I finally got a big trophy for the kids," he said on Sunday after taking home the Cincy title, according to The Guardian"I've been bringing home some smaller ones. I keep telling them they are still trophies but this one should satisfy them."

Meanwhile, Federer has been seeded number 2 for the US Open with the reigning Wimbledon champion and world no. 1 Novak Djokovic as number one seed.

In the event that Federer and Djokovic reach the final of 2014 Grand Slam tournament, they would have a rematch at this year's Wimbledon Championships final, which was won by Djokovic in a five-set thriller.

Federer is seeded at the US Open for the 14th consecutive year, tying Ivan Lendl with only Jimmy Connors ahead of them for the longest streak in the Open Era. For the past four years, Djokovic reached the US Open final and won the title in 2011.

On the other hand, the current US Open champion Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the tournament due to a right wrist injury from practice.
