Roger Federer ended a seven-month title drought with a 6-7, 7-6, 6-4 win over American Mardy Fish in the Cincinnati Masters final on Sunday to send a timely reminder of his class just a week before the U.S. Open. Federer captured his 63rd title in his 90th final and won his fourth title at Cincinnati since 2005. He also is 14-1 in finals against U.S. players, the lone loss to Andre Agassi in Miami eight years ago. "I've been playing well the last couple weeks, and today was just another proof that I'm playing really well," he said.

Sustained greatness a plus Diane Pucin Los Angeles Times Roger Federer became the No. 1 tennis player in the world Monday, one of the consequences of his 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 Wimbledon victory over Andy Murray on Sunday. He's also the best ever. That's not an immediately easy conclusion to reach. Federer has lost to contemporary Rafael Nadal more than he has beaten the Spaniard; the career record is 18-10 in Nadal's favor. Nadal leads Federer 7-2 in meetings at Grand Slam tournaments.

Sunday was a day for superstars - two athletes considered perhaps the greatest to play their sports. In golf, Tiger Woods charged from four shots back to take a one-shot victory in The Memorial, Jack Nicklaus' tournament in Dublin, Ohio. Woods birdied the last two holes en route to shooting a 65 to secure his 67th victory and serve notice that he's ready for the U.S. Open in less than two weeks at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, N.Y. In tennis, Roger Federer won his 14th career major title to tie Pete Sampras for most all time, and he secured the career Grand Slam with his first French Open title.

Is it coincidence that the FINA World Swimming Championships are taking place in a temporary pool inside Rod Laver Arena this week? After all, with sportswriters struggling to come up with ways to put Michael Phelps' performance - five gold medals and four world records through the first five days - into context, the most obvious comparison is to the play of the man who competed in this very building only two months ago, but with a racket in his hand:...

WIMBLEDON, England -- Rafael Nadal sat on the dirty carpet of his rented apartment, three blocks away from Wimbledon's Centre Court, 21 hours before he was scheduled for the biggest match of his life against grass court wizard Roger Federer. Federer, the top seed and three-time defending champion, hasn't lost a set here in two weeks. He has won 47 straight grass court matches. The 24-year-old from Switzerland is picked by nearly everyone, in the locker room here, by the experts everywhere else, to win a fourth straight title and his eighth major overall.

NEW YORK - -Roger Federer is 5 inches shorter than Juan Martin del Potro. Federer is 8 years older than del Potro. But the 6-foot-1 inch, 28-year-old Federer has 15 major championship titles. He is in his 21st Grand Slam tournament final. He is in his 17th major final in his last 18 attempts. And today Federer might become the first man since Bill Tilden in the 1920s to win six straight U.S. Open championships. The top-seeded Federer beat the fourth-seeded Novak Djokovic, 7-6 (3), 7-5, 7-5, Sunday in the second men's semifinal.

WASHINGTON - -Since the Wimbledon championship July 5, rising American tennis star Sam Querrey has reached the finals of two tournaments and won another. In the same four-week span, top-ranked American Andy Roddick has played just 55 minutes of competitive tennis. So it was understandable, when the big-serving pair met Thursday at Washington's Legg Mason Tennis Classic, that Querrey was the sharper player. But on this night, as so often in life, experience compensated for any momentary shortcoming.

BEIJING - He is the ultimate Swiss timepiece now. Gold, no less. Roger Federer has been pursuing a spot on the top platform of an Olympic victory stand for eight years and three Olympics, and it didn't seem possible that he had not yet made the climb. He has been the best tennis player in the world for long enough to have your son or daughter start and finish college, but the Olympics have always been his banana peel. Last night, it finally came to pass that dreams do come true, even for icons who have realized almost all of theirs.

It's like holding the Masters without Tiger Woods. The annual Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest will go on July 4 at New York's Coney Island, but Takeru Kobayashi won't be there. The competitive eating superstar is out with an injury. And, no, the injury has nothing to do with an ulcer. Kobayashi has an arthritic jaw. On his Web site, Kobayashi said: "My jaw refused to fight anymore." He can't open his mouth more than the width of a fingertip. "I feel ashamed that I couldn't notice the alarm bells set off by my own body," he said.
