Top-ranked Roger Federer beat French teenager Richard Gasquet 6-3, 7-5, 7-6 (4) Sunday to defend his Hamburg Masters title and win his tour-leading sixth championship of the year. By avenging one of only two losses this year, Federer stretched his Open era record -- he has now won 19 consecutive finals he has played since October 2003.
