Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will write another chapter in their storied rivalry when the meet in the final of the Western & Southern Open, in a match that pits the two legends against one another for the first time in two years, due mostly to injuries.

Djokovic defeated Marin Cilic on Saturday 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 and Federer topped David Goffin when Goffin retired in the second set with a shoulder injury.

Djokovic leads Federer in head-to-head title matches 11-6, and their overall series 23-22.

“It would be the greatest challenge in Cincinnati, without a doubt, because he’s been dominating this tournament historically,” Djokovic said.

“It’s great to be back in the finals, against Novak in particular,” Federer said. “There’s a lot riding on the match. It’s great to refresh a rivalry we’ve had for many years.”

Djokovic will be vying to become the first to win all nine events since the series started back in 1990.

“My sixth time, I’ll try to win the title,” he said. “Obviously, this time I’m hoping I get my hands on the trophy.”

Alouettes Release Johnny Manziel

The Montreal Alouettes have released former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Montreal traded two first round draft picks to acquire Manziel last year, and the CFL has announced that it will not approve a Manziel contract should another CFL team attempt to sign him.

Apparently, Manziel violated his contract with the Alouettes, according to the team.

With the AAF in play, and the XFL arriving next season, it is likely that Manziel is looking to latch on with either of those two leagues as opposed to continuing to play in the CFL.

However, if Manziel is looking to draw significant interest his play in the CFL left much to be desired.

Manziel appeared in 8 games for Montreal during his tenure, throwing 5 touchdowns verse 7 interceptions, certainly disappointing numbers that won’t elicit much excitement.
