Verkerk [46] began the final on his serve with two net-cords… Actually the only interesting moment occurred in the mid-3rd set when the Dutchman held after 8 deuces saving six break points and had two break points in the following game to level at 3 games apiece. Ferrero [3] finished the tournament with his trademark shot – a blistering cross-court forehand. The Spaniard fulfilled his destiny after two French Open semifinals and a final in his previous three appearances.
