A win by Federer is tomorrow’s final will vault him into the #2 position.

Roger Federer will play Tomas Berdych in Sunday’s Mutua Madrid Open final. The Swiss will win this event for the third time if he sees off the Czech, having eased past Janko Tipsarevic. A 6-2 6-3 victory took Federer into his 104th career final, while Berdych edged out 10th seed Juan Martin del Potro 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (7/6) in the other semi-final. Federer, a winner of this event in 2006 and 2009, has benefited from the early exits of both Rafael Nadal and top-ranked Novak Djokovic on the blue clay which has attracted criticism for being slippery. And he had few problems today, wrapping up victory in 67 minutes and hitting 25 winners and eight aces in the process. The Swiss excelled in his service games and took control of the first set in the fourth game when he broke Tipsarevic and wrapped up the set when he repeated the feat two games later. And the end was in sight for the man who knocked out Djokovic when he was broken in the fourth game of the second set, giving Federer the incentive he needed to close out the contest.

Another success inthe final against sixth seed Berdych will see Federer replace Nadal at number two in the ATP Rankings.
