    Total points: 90-58 | 31-20, 28-15, 31-23 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    29 % Korda – 23 of 77
    26 % Rios – 19 of 71

    The 30-year-old Czech was presumably under the influence of anabolic steroid nandrolone… His 12th win in a row after one of the shortest major finals – lasted 1 hour 24 minutes. Korda’s 10th and last title of his career; 1.5 years later he retires being accused of a doping violation and losing matches more often than winning them… In March 2015 Rios demanded (in vain) to receive the title due to the suspicion of Korda taking illegal substances before their final.

    Korda’s route to the title:
    1 Albert Portas 6-3, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4
    2 Scott Draper 7-6(3), 6-3, 6-3
    3 Vincent Spadea 6-2, 7-6(8), 6-2
    4 Cedric Pioline 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3
    Q Jonas Bjorkman 3-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4, 6-2
    S Karol Kucera 6-1, 6-4, 1-6, 6-2
    W Marcelo Rios 6-2, 6-2, 6-2
