Murray [6] led 2-1 in their H2H before the final, but he paid the price for very difficult road to his first major final. There was 2-all in the opening set when Federer[2] took the next six games against the visibly tired Scot. The Swiss already led 5:0* (15-all) in the 3rd set… # Two years later they play another major final against each other and despite quite similar scoreline the match is almost one hour longer.

Federer’s route to his 56th title:
1 Maximo Gonzalez 6-3, 6-0, 6-3
2 Thiago Alves 6-3, 7-5, 6-4
3 Radek Stepanek 6-3, 6-3, 6-2
4 Igor Andreev 6-7(5), 7-6(5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-3
Q Gilles Muller 7-6(5), 6-4, 7-6(5)
S Novak Djokovic 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, 6-2
