Roger Federer can add another milestone to his memorable season on Sunday when he meets Alexander Zverev for the Coupe Rogers championship. A win would tie Federer with Ivan Lendl for second in the Open Era with 94 ATP World Tour titles. Only Jimmy Connors owns more with 109.
Should he win his third Coupe Rogers title (first in Montreal), Federer will secure a Top 2 seed at the US Open and control his own destiny in next week’s race for the No. 1 ranking. See below for all scenarios as Federer and Rafael Nadal battle in Cincinnati for the top spot in the Emirates ATP Rankings.

Federer is 5-0 in finals and 35-2 overall this season, holding match point in all 37 of his matches. He has earned 16 straight victories to equal his longest win streak since 2012. Zverev is on a nine-match unbeaten run of his own, boosting him to a career-high 45 victories in 2017.
The 20-year-old German is 4-1 in 2017 finals, losing only to Federer 6-1, 6-3 in 53 minutes at Halle on 25 June. Should he avenge that loss, Zverev would tie Federer for the most ATP World Tour titles this year.
Zverev is the youngest Coupe Rogers finalist since Novak Djokovic won the Montreal title in 2007. He is hoping to join Jo-Wilfried Tsonga as the second active player other than the Big Four of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Andy Murray to win multiple Masters 1000 titles.
Zverev is also bidding to become the 11th champion this season who saved match point en route to a title. The German fought off three match points against Richard Gasquet in his opener.
