Despite his recent losses, Roger Federer is confident of improving his game in the run-up to the US Open.


Cincinnati: A weekend title defeat in Canada did not dent the hopes of a resurgent Roger Federer as the world number three keeps to a steady pace in his buildup to the US Open.

The Swiss, who turned 33 last week, said that his 7-5, 7-6 (7/2) finals loss in Toronto to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was a disappointment but also a huge chance to gather more information on the current state of his game, which is bolstered by a new racquet.

While the Swiss missed out on his third title of the season after playing in seven finals, he did start putting the pieces in place as he begins as second seed at this week's final US Open tune-up, the Cincinnati Masters.
