Eisner upsets Djokovic

MASON, Ohio — Novak Djokovic’s bid to become the first player to win all nine Masters events has been put on hold for at least another year.

The world’s top-ranked player has never won Cincinnati, losing in the finals four times. He lost to Roger Federer in the title match last year.
