The final lasted only 1 hour 56 minutes, Murray finished it with an ace down the T. A revenge for their Wimbledon final played a month before.

1 Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) 6-3, 6-3
2 Jarkko Nieminen (FIN) 6-2, 6-4
3 Marcos Baghdatis (CYP) 4-6, 6-1, 6-4
Q Nicolas Almagro (ESP) 6-4, 6-1
S Novak Djokovic (SRB) 7-5, 7-5
W Roger Federer (SUI) 6-2, 6-1, 6-4
