federer survives kiefer

Top seeded Roger Federer reached the third round for the first time in five appearances at Cincinnati with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 win over Germany's Nicolas Kiefer.

Federer earned three break points to start off the match before Kiefer reeled off five straight for the hold. Federer rallied a break while Kiefer was serving for the set, but the German bounced back with a second break up 5-4 to take the first set off of Federer for the first time since the World No. 1 fell to eventual champion Rafael Nadal in the Roland Garros semifinal.

Federer won three out of three break point chances to open a up a 5-1 lead in the third set. Then Kiefer issued a scare when he broke while Federer was serving for the match at 5-2.

Federer wrapped when serving it out for the second time in two hours, 13 minutes. He next faces former doubles partner Olivier Rochus in the Round of 16.
