Federer def. Safin 6-4 6-7(6) 6-4 for third consecutive title in Halle

Congrats Federer! Well done for him and he found ways to his matches despite I think he is not as dominating as last year at that time, not only because the scorelines have been closer, but also because he showed a few uncommon mistakes that he normally hardly does. But of course great stuff of him to find any ways to win these matches.


A very good week for Safin, too. He certainly was a good finalist and pushed Federer to three sets. But also for him, lots of room for improvements, I wished he stayed unbroken in the third set (if he doesn't :retard: in this game in that he was broken missing two easy shots) and then he certainly would have been capable to win another shoot-out in the third set. But good to see that he got his best result on grass!

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

lol... and all this despite I especially waited a bit longer after the result because I thought a bigger Federer fan than me is going to make it... then I thought "damn, nobody is doing it, so let me do this" and all of a sudden there have been two others

He has completed the Halle hatrick, now lets complete the Wimbledon hatrick.
