The weather had been cold and windy which may have contributed to Davydenko's muscle strain in the second set.

Federer duly won his first title of the season and the 54th of his career as he strives to win the French open on clay - the only Grand Slam to have eluded the world's best player so far.

In the womens' singles, Russia's Maria Kirilenko defeated Iveta Benesova from the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-2.
