Singles and doubles final?

It seems that if Roger wins his doubles semis in Halle, he and Safin could meet in the singles and doubles final. Safin is already in the singles and doubles final (with Johansson).

This is a very interesting stat.

Has this ever happened before?

Re: Singles and doubles final?

Woodbridge and Bhupathi abandoned the match. We'll have Roger v Marat twice tomorrow.

best of three or five?

Hypocrites always wanna play innocent,
Always wanna take it to the full out extent,
Always wanna make it seem like good intent,
And never wanna face it when it's time for punishment.

Abandoned the match? Why?

Anyway, Halle is going to be an interesting tournament tomorrow. I wish, I could see it.

So, have any other players been in this unique situation?

It says on the Halle website that Bhupati/Woodbridge retired. One of them must be injured.

Re: Singles and doubles final?

Cool facts : (from the ATP website)

Federer and Safin are the fourth and fifth players to reach both singles and doubles finals this year:
- Wayne Arthurs won singles, lost in doubles (w/Hanley) final in Scottsdale
- Rafael Nadal won singles, lost in doubles (w/Lopez) final in Barcelona
- Tommy Robredo reached singles and doubles (w/Chela) finals in Estoril

The last time both singles finalists were in the doubles final was in Scottsdale on Mar. 9, 2003. Lleyton Hewitt defeated Mark Philippoussis in the singles final, then they teamed together in doubles, losing in the final.

The last time Federer appeared in both finals was in Bangkok last year, winning the singles and losing in the doubles final (w/Allegro). Federer last won singles and doubles titles in the same tournament in Vienna (w/Allegro) in 2003.

The last tournament double winner on the ATP circuit was Nikolay Davydenko in Moscow last year (w/Andreev).

Cool facts, indeed.
