    Points won by each set: | 30-20, 31-22 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    21 % Nadal – 11 of 52
    33 % Kiefer – 17 of 51

    Kiefer’s 10th final lost in a row, and the last one in his career (the only one ‘Masters 1000’). He was 31 at the time. In the 2nd set at 2-all, Nadal held after 6 deuces saving three break points. “I win on every surface, no? I win on grass, on hard, on indoor, and on clay too,” Nadal said. “So if I am playing my best tennis I can win on every surface, no?”A time when Nadal was on his way to become the best player in the world for the first time.

    Nadal’s road to his 30th title:
    2 Jesse Levine 6-4, 6-2
    3 Igor Andreev 6-2, 7-6(1)
    Q Richard Gasquet 6-7(12), 6-2, 6-1
    S Andy Murray 7-6(2), 6-3
    W Nicolas Kiefer 6-3, 6-2
