    Points won by each set: | 26-9, 32-29 |

    Stats without service winners… Nieminen [35] advanced to the final in impressive style winning each match under an hour (!), but Federer [5] was fit & fresh too, having won his four preceding matches with similar ease. In the 2nd set the Finn led 3:0 with one break of serve. “I’m already at three titles halfway through the season. If I can now step it up in the majors, that would make me very happy.” said the Swiss, who a few months later captures his first major title at Wimbledon.

    Federer’s route to his 7th title (100th main-level event):
    1 Zeljko Krajan 6-4, 6-3
    2 Raemon Sluiter 6-4, 6-3
    Q Mikhail Youzhny 6-2, 6-3
    S Stefan Koubek 6-2, 6-1
    W Jarkko Nieminen 6-1, 6-4
