Another MS = Another Cañas victory over FedEx
Cañas def. Federer 7-6(2) 2-6 7-6(5)
Willy "the greatest claycourter ever" (
) Cañas beats back-to-back on the hardcourts Federer (three times Indian Wells champion, two times Miami champion)
Nice choke by Rogi - wasted 4 BP's at 2:0 in the 3rd and mini-match point at 5:5. H2H in tight sets between these two: Cañas 5-0
The funny thing: Cañas in Miami played his first ATP qualifying-tournament outside South America (lost in the 1st round qualy to Ram 1-2 in 1996) and in Miami '98 won his 1st Masters Series match (Reneberg 2-0).
