Roger Federer ended Guillermo Coria's streak of clay-court wins at 31 to win the Hamburg Masters for a second time. Federer was not at his supreme best, particularly early on, but rallied to claim the third Masters Series title of his career with a 4-6 6-4 6-2 6-3 win.
 

The two players had never met in any ATP tournament or Grand Slam and when the defending champion Coria won the first set, the final that everybody had been hoping for at the start of the week looked as if it could live up to its billing.But once Federer found his rhythm there was only going to be one winner.In the end Federer was totally dominant and showed he is capable of winning on any surface.The win will give the world number one a huge psychological boost going into the French Open, knowing he has the measure of the best there is on clay. Coria was hampered by a blister on his hand, but Federer was a worthy winner.
