This is also their 46th meeting and Djokovic’s 24th win over the Swiss ace. Here is how Twitter reacted to the match.

Novak was @CincyTennis runner-up 5 times. A week after we play dubs (go #Djokerson) he wins the title. Coincidence? 🤔🤷🏼‍♂😂

Seriously though, congrats @DjokerNole on an amazing achievement. There’s a reason no one had completed a Golden Masters until now. Well done bud 👊

Djokovic has now won all 14 elite events on the ATP. No player has ever done that in tennis history and Djokovic completed the accomplishment by beating Federer. This goes a long way towards reopening the GOAT debate.
