Safin vs. Wawrinka

They have never played each other but I think it will be a good match.

I say Safin in four close sets.

Yeah, I think Safin wins with difficulty.

Re: Safin vs. Wawrinka

hmmm not even sure who i want to win this match. both players need a big result in a slam but i almost think another early loss for Safin it may be time to close the book on his career as big time player.

Re: Safin vs. Wawrinka

i want to see the peak year 2000 like Safin vs Roger Federer on the US open courts. It'll be the best match ever.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

I agree

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018
