Points won by each set: [ 28-23, 22-30, 44-38 ]
Points won directly behind the serve:
35 % Roddick – 30 of 85
26 % Federer – 26 of 100

Federer [3] could have become the best player in the world if he had won that match. In the 3rd set, playing really well, he led 4:2* (30/15), but Roddick [7] was on fire at the time and managed to deal better with the finishing line. Federer significantly helped in the 7/3 tie-break, playing three bad points to open it… Federer led just 4:1 in their H2H after that Canadian Open meeting, their rivalry seemed wide open, unfortunately (for whom?) the Swiss won their 11 following matches!
