    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.
