Untypical scoreline for a grass-court match with two good servers involved, but Federer  enjoyed amazing form in years 2004-2007 & it was one of his many immaculate tournaments. Fish thought he won his opening service game, but Carlos Bernardes overruled decision of a linesman & the Swiss took seven games in a row in total. “I’m happy to have been able to play solid tennis all week. I really enjoyed playing here. It’s the best possible preparation for Wimbledon,” said Federer. Fish predicted that his rival looked good for a successful Wimbledon defence. “He played inspired tennis,” added the American .
Federer’s route to his 16th title:
1 Thomas Johansson 6-3, 6-2
2 Mikhail Youzhny 6-2, 6-1
Q Arnaud Clement 6-3, 7-5
S Jiri Novak 6-3, 6-4
W Mardy Fish 6-0, 6-3
