Coria [4] claimed his 26th straight match win on clay and spoiled Schuettler’s 28th birthday (born: April 25, 1976). The German [6] was outplayed in the first two sets, in the 3rd set he began playing more aggressive tennis and twice had a point to lead by a break of serve. Coria’s wall-mode was so frustrating for the German that caused him losing his mind as he was trailing 0:3* (15/30) in the 2nd set – he returned the ball, and after Coria’s shot he wanted Lahyani to check the mark. The umpire awarded a point to Coria though, and Schuettler demanded the supervisor, but couldn’t change the score. For Schuettler – the sensation of 2003, Monte Carlo ’04 meant his only very good event in the following season.

Coria’s route to his 8th title:
1 Thomas Enqvist 6-0, 6-1
2 Nicolas Kiefer 6-0, 6-3
3 Andrei Pavel 4-6, 6-1, 6-4
Q David Nalbandian 6-4, 6-3
S Marat Safin 6-4, 1-6, 6-3
W Rainer Schuettler 6-2, 6-1, 6-3
