This is where he needs to make it count Federer nets his first serve and then an easy backhand, before teasing Djokovic wide and into the net to pass him for all.
A better serve next time, and Djokovic leaves another open court for the Swiss winner. Roger finds a net cord for all, as the yelpy crowd get a little excited.
Federer nets abother backhand - break point Djokovic! The next rally is a lively cross-courter, but Federer prevails as Djokovic nets.

Federer dispatched compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka to keep alive his hopes of a seventh title at the year-ender, while Djokovic outplayed Rafael Nadal Roger Federer has reached the semi-finals with a per cent win record.
It sets up the perfect climax to the season between two players with 27 grand slam titles between them. Nadal described him as "almost unbeatable" on Saturday but the Serb still trails Federer overall and says the Swiss plays a game he finds uncomfortable, especially over three sets rather than in grand slam play when Djokovic has the edge.

Djokovic 30 and Federer 27 will also be eager to narrow the gap on all-time Masters title record holder Nadal, who won his 33rd title at the level last week in Toronto.
Bidding to win his 70th tour-level trophy, Djokovic will need to find his best level in the championship match. The five-time runner-up is yet to win a set in a Cincinnati final.
But the Wimbledon champion has been pushed all the way in Cincinnati. After a straight-sets win over Steve Johnson in the first round, Djokovic has needed deciding sets in each of his four encounters against Adrian Mannarino , Grigor Dimitrov , Milos Raonic and Marin Cilic.
Competing for the first time since his quarter-final exit to Kevin Anderson at Wimbledon , Federer has continually impressed on serve this week.
The year-old has held each of his 43 service games en route to the final, facing only five break points along the way.
But Federer has been significantly tested. Federer, who began his career with a record in Cincinnati, has lost just four of his most recent 49 matches at the Lindner Family Tennis Center.
Can Djokovic finally complete his set of Masters trophies or will Federer, once again, deny Djokovic in the championship match to extend his unbeaten record in Cincinnati finals?
