    Points won directly behind the serve:
    34 % Federer – 25 of 73
    15 % Ferrer – 13 of 82

    Federer triumphed in the season-ending championship for the fourth time, unfortunately every time doing it with overwhelming advantage over the final opponent. For the first time it was expected because Ferrer’s advancement to the final indoors was quite shocking, prior to 2007 hthe 25-year-old Spaniard was considered a typical clayc-ourter. Ferrer stated: “He’s not just number one, he’s the best in history. He has 12 Grand Slams and I’m sure he’ll get the record (14). He can do it all. He serves very well, he has a very good forehand and backhand. He has no weak points.” They will play another big final against each other seven years later.

    Federer’s route to his 53rd title:
    rr. Fernando Gonzalez 6-3, 6-7(1), 5-7
    rr. Nikolay Davydenko 6-4, 6-3
    rr. Andy Roddick 6-4, 6-2
    S Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-1
    W David Ferrer 6-2, 6-3, 6-2

    Comparison of Federer’s three ‘Masters’ finals in which he dismantled his opponents:
    Houston ’03: Federer d. Agassi 6-3, 6-0, 6-4… 96 minutes… Fed broke 5 times, served 11 aces, won 30 points more
    Shanghai ’06: Federer d. Blake 6-0, 6-3, 6-4… 97 minutes… Fed broke 6 times, served 11 aces, won 33 points more
    Shanghai ’07: Federer d. Ferrer 6-2, 6-3, 6-2… 99 minutes… Fed broke 6 times, served 9 aces, won 31 points more
