    Points by each set: | 43-38, 39-40, 41-43 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    30 % Federer – 38 of 124
    39 % Ljubicic – 48 of 121

    Ljubicic was two points away from winning the two opening sets:
    # 5-all in the 1st TB
    # 5:4* (30-all) in the 2nd set (he also led 4:1* in the 2nd TB) and
    # squandered a set point at 6:5* in the 3rd TB (he earlier led in that set 3:1*, 30/15)
    Federer converted his first match point thanks to the net-cord (backhand return) to finish the only final in history concluded with a 7-6 7-6 7-6 scoreline!

    Federer’s route to the title:
    2 Arnaud Clement 6-2, 6-7(4), 6-0
    3 Tommy Haas 6-1, 6-3
    4 Dmitry Tursunov 6-3, 6-3
    Q James Blake 7-6(2), 6-4
    S David Ferrer 6-1, 6-4
    W Ivan Ljubicic 7-6(5), 7-6(4), 7-6(6)

    * Federer led 4:0 in the tie-break vs Clement!
