Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

Was it his arm? I hoped Safin would win but not like that.

Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

you say that because of the score, but maybe calleri was struggling long before retiering :/

Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

he probably was struggling before, therefore, if he continued the match, he would have lost

Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

lucky guy? marat? that's the biggest joke I have heard! look at the next round and more, no one could say he is lucky! it's impossible that every opponent will give up the match! so marat has many things to do indeed!

Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

yeah! marat is anything but lucky! lol

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

i only saw the first two set.s Calleri came out the way he played against Agassi when he spanked him -- he was ripping shots and playing besides himself. Safin did what Jimmy Arias (the commentator i hear on ESPN-I) called a "fake tank" in the first set. everything about his body language broadcasted that he was going to just tank the flipping match. i wanted to choke him. then next thing you know Safin settles down and starts playing beautiful tennis, big serves, lovely touches. he just got into the groove. and mainly Calleri started running out of energy. on any other surface, most of his shots would have been winners, but on clay Safin was returning like a monster. up to the point that i saw, Calleri was not injured -- just frustrated, demoralized and de-energized.

by the way Safin now sports an interesting beard-mustache combo. it makes him look hot.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

they said on ESPN today that it was an abductor... that's around the hip or groin or something right? Hopefully it's just pulled/strained and nothing worse!!

Re: Safin through to the 2nd round

I consider the most importand aspect of this match the fact that Safin didn't have to play 5 sets. He might play a lot of them later.

Anastasia Myskina, Marat Safin thank you.
