You must be joking.

Another step closer to retirement.

I love Safin. Damn. I wanted him to play Novak. Now it's going to be easier for Serbia to beat Russia.

I don't like Nadal.

I like a lot of players.

This is too bad for such a talented player he has been unlucky for quite a while now. He should have had that knee operated on when he had the chance.

...but yeah, that's a blow for Russia's doubles hopes. Yet, it isn't like it affects their chances too much. I mean, they probably have to win the doubles anyway, and a number would consider them the underdogs against Nole/Zimonjic, regardless.

What a blow. He looked fine during practice.




"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Safin withdraws from Davis Cup, San Jose and Sampras exo due to injury

Safin is pulling out of this week's Davis Cup tie against Serbia and is in doubt for San Jose in two weeks' time, according to San Jose tournament director Bill Rapp."Yesterday, while practicing for the Davis Cup tie against Serbia, Marat tweaked his toe and has had an MRI. In a few hours, the Russian team will announce that he will pull out of that Davis Cup tie," said Rapp.

Safin had been scheduled to play an exhibition against Pete Sampras in San Jose as well as the event itself. "We're going to daily monitor that situation," said Rapp.

Its too bad news.
Russia does not have double team without Marat.
To win three single meetings - looks unreal for me.
Pity Marat.
