    Points won by each set: | 28-20, 25-10, 34-27 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    34 % Federer – 24 of 70
    17 % Agassi – 13 of 74

    22-year-old Federer displayed supreme performance, yet 33-year-old Agassi was physically exhausted and his movement quite poor, after four consecutive three-setters, including a loss to Federer at ’round robin’ stage (despite holding two match points). “Roger played great tennis all week; he deserves to win here,” Agassi said. “I wish I could have done more today, but I just didn’t have enough… He’s doing everything great. He’s a great mover, a great striker of the ball off both sides. He’s a factor from the back of the court and when he comes to the net. His serve is very effective. He knows the game really well.

    Federer’s route to his 11th title:
    rr. Andre Agassi 6-7(3), 6-3, 7-6(7) – 2 m.p.
    rr. David Nalbandian 6-3, 6-0
    rr. Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-3, 6-1
    S Andy Roddick 7-6(2), 6-2
    W Andre Agassi 6-3, 6-0, 6-4
