    Points won directly behind the serve:
    30 % Ferreira – 14 of 46
    19 % Delaitre – 9 of 46

    Ferreira started the 2nd set trailing 0/40 on serve, but quickly won five straight points and five games in a row, finished the match with an ace out-wide. The fourth and last final in career of the 27-year-old Delaitre [87] (every time he was quickly outplayed in those matches) – the biggest one; prior to the final he won five matches in straight sets, overcoming four solid players of the 90s. Meanwhile the four years younger Ferreira [15], mainly thanks to his formidable forehand, in the state of Indiana began the best period of his career winning 25 out of 28 matches (claimed titles: Indianapolis, Bordeaux, Basel, Tel Aviv).

    Ferreira’s route to his 4th title:
    2 Jim Grabb 6-1, 6-3
    3 Carlos Costa 7-6(7), 6-7(3), 6-2
    Q Thomas Enqvist 6-2, 6-2
    S Alex Corretja 6-1, 6-2
    W Olivier Delaitre 6-2, 6-1
