And even better, he now leads 5-3* in the second set. Hmm, people recovering from 0-40 down to hold seems to have been happening a lot recently - Bjorkman against Guga in Davis Cup, Mirnyi against Federer yesterday in Rotterdam...

Roddick has held... Dent will have to serve for it at 5-4. Make it easier than the last game please, Taylor!

Taylor Dent def. Andy Roddick 6-1, 6-4

Brilliant! Two titles, and as Becca said, at the expensive of two far more hyped American players!

Well, with Sluiter and Coria having already lost their finals, this certainly saved my day... I wonder how much it'll help Dent's ranking?

Dent was ranked 68th with 597 points last week. This title will add 250 points, but he loses 25 for his result from last year. So his total this week will be 822 (597+250-25).

This puts him roughly around 43rd.

It also is worth noting, that if Dent can rack up another 200 points or so between now and Wimbledon, he might just get a Wimbledon seed. Which would be quite nice for a number of guys who might not want to play him in round 1...
