Roger Federer survived his second match unscathed at the season-ending Tennis Masters Cup, a massive relief Tuesday for organizers of the injury-marred tournament. Two-time defending champion Federer, the only top-five player left in the event, held on for a 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (4) victory over sixth-seeded Ivan Ljubicic to extend his winning stretch to 33 matches.
