CINCINNATI (AFP) - Five time champion Roger Federer continued his dominance over hard-hitting Canadian Milos Raonic with a 6-2, 6-3 win Saturday to reach the final of the ATP Tour's Cincinnati Masters event.

The 33-year-old Federer, who advanced to the semis with a straight set win over Scotland's Andy Murray, has now won all six career meetings against Raonic.

Federer's victory sets up the battle of the 30-somethings as he will now face Spaniard David Ferrer, 32, in Sunday's final.
