Well, it’s the final everyone knew would happen. For the third year. *Yawn*

Roger Federer
saw off Marat Safin, 6-3, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4. I was hoping that Marat would find his best form and beat Roger but, as usual, he was far too strong for poor Marat. I suppose a semi-final was more than Marat had expected, so he’s probably happy with his performance.

Rafa Nadal saw off Rainer Schuettler, 6-1, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4. After the first set I thought ‘yep, there’s not going to be much in this match’. I am so glad that Schuettler proved me wrong. It’s just a pity he couldn’t keep the break he had in the second set to take the set from Rafa. But hey, he did more than I though he would, and gave Rafa a good run for his money.

Laura Robson made it into the girl’s singles final. Well done her! I’m hoping she goes on to win the junior Wimbledon title.
