It still hurts that Rogi lost, not so much that David beat him [since Rogi has always had probs w David anyway] but winning huge in Shanghai s give David tons of confidence and motivation to keep winning. The way he was playing in Shanghai was so focused -- you could see that he was getting into his stride in the previous tourneys and he sure peaked at the perfect time AND vs. his perfect opponent!
If at the AO HE could beat the guy who beats him, that w be gigantic.
It w be another battle of two very talented guys -- a very interesting one at that. Hmm... wonder how early they could meet each other? I don't even know what Marat's ranking is these days.
