By winning the 2007 Hamburg Masters Series, Federer won his 48th career title, his 6th career title on clay, his 4th title at Hamburg, his 13th masters series shield, ended Rafa’s all time clay court streak of 81 matches, but most importantly, it is his only win over Nadal on clay yet or perhaps ever. Rafa was dominant in the 1st set, but Federer came out to hit the best he could on clay to easily win the 2nd and 3rd sets. The match lasted 1 hour and 55 minutes.

Result: R. Federer def. R. Nadal 2-6, 6-2, 6-0

My Stats:

Federer had 23 non-service winners: 14 fh, 2 bh, 4 fhv, 1 bhv, and 2 oh

Nadal had 19 non-service winners: 7 fh, 7 bh, 3 fhv, and 2 bhv.

Non-Service Winners by set:

Federer: 4, 9, 10

Nadal: 6, 10, 3

Federer hit 6 aces, while Nadal hit only 1 (which was a 2nd serve kicker).

Federer’s 1st serve percetage was 51 % (37 of 73), while Nadal’s was 78%

(62 of 80).

Federer hit 12 total unreturned serves with 6 aces while Nadal hit 9 total unreturned serves and 1 was an ace.

The only double fault in the match was hit by Nadal in the first set.

Federer was 5 of 11, or 45%, on breaks, Nadal was 2 of 7, or 29%.

Federer hit 51 errors in the match, which I judged 46 as unforced errors.

Nadal hit 52 errors, which I judged 36 as unforced errors.

There was 153 points in the match, Federer won 81 points and Nadal won 72 points.

Etc. stats:

In Federer’s 1st service game of the 1st set, he only served 5 of 14 1st serves in and ended with a 48% 1st serve percentage for the 1st set. (14 of 29).

In Federer’s first service game of the third set, he only served 2 of 10 1st serves in and ended up with a 29% 1st serve percentage for the third set. (6 of 21). That really surprises me to have a 1st serve percentage of 29 % in the set and win the set w/ a bagel. So, he may have won it so easy because Rafa was fatigued, especially coming from winning against Hewitt in his semi in a 3 set battle the previous day.
