The Wimbledon, US Open and Olympic champion broke again in the sixth game of the second set and sealed victory after just 51 minutes with an angled backhand winner crosscourt.

Richard Gasquet won the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha with a determined fight back in the final to see off Nikolay Davydenko 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-3.
Former World No.3 Davydenko had upset World No.5 David Ferrer in the semi-finals and reproduced that form in the final to open up a 6-3, 4-2 lead. When the 31 year-old Russian held two further break points in the seventh game he appeared on the verge of victory.
However Gasquet crucially held and broke back in the eighth game. The set went to a tie-break which Gasquet took with an emphatic smash to level the match.
The second seeded Frenchman broke twice in the decider clinching the win after two and a half hours when Davydenko netted a final backhand.
