Roger Federer's best surface may be U.S. soil. With comebacks in three consecutive tiebreakers Sunday, Federer remained unbeaten in the United States since August 2004, beating Ivan Ljubicic 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (6) to win the Nasdaq-100 Open. Federer became the first man to win back-to-back titles at Indian Wells and Key Biscayne in consecutive years.
