    Points won by each set: | 45-40, 27-15 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    32 % Federer – 18 of 56
    32 % Isner – 23 of 71

    Isner (208 cm) became the tallest Top 10er in history & the tallest player to reach the ‘Masters 1000’ final after sensational 7-6 3-6 7-6 victory over Djokovic [1] in the semis… The American giant [11] had three break points at 1-all, since then he couldn’t do anything in Federer’s service games (lost all sixteen points on return in the 2nd set!). Federer [3] converted his fourth set point to take the opener, having created his last opportunity with a mishit backhand which turned into a lob that landed on the baseline. My description of the final.

    Federer’s route to his 73rd title:
    2 Denis Kudla 6-4, 6-1
    3 Milos Raonic 6-7(4), 6-2, 6-4
    4 Thomaz Bellucci 3-6, 6-3, 6-4
    Q Juan Martin del Potro 6-3, 6-2
    S Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-4
    W John Isner 7-6(7), 6-3

    # Federer was 0/30 serving at 4-all in the 3rd set vs Bellucci, so technically six points away from defeat
