    Points won by each set: | 27-20, 25-30, 47-36, 27-13 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    26 % Federer – 27 of 103
    26 % Roddick – 32 of 122

    Crucial game of the 2-hour 25-minute final came at 2-all in the 3rd set when Federer fought off a triple break point (Roddick took another game on serve after 7 deuces). Federer won seven games in a row from 5-all in that set and almost got another game – the American withstood first match point serving at 0:5 in the 4th set. It was Roddick’s first major being coached by five-time US Open champion Jimmy Connors. They cooperated at six majors in total, never reaching the final again… 2006 it was the first year in history that in both, men’s & women’s tours the same player reached all four major finals: Federer & Justine Henin-Hardene.

    Federer’s route to the title:
    1 Jimmy Wang 6-4, 6-1, 6-0
    2 Tim Henman 6-3, 6-4, 7-5
    3 Vince Spadea 6-3, 6-3, 6-0
    4 Marc Gicquel 6-3, 7-6(2), 6-3
    Q James Blake 7-6(7), 6-0, 6-7(9), 6-4
    S Nikolay Davydenko 6-1, 7-5, 6-4
    W Andy Roddick 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1
