I thought that Safin was supposed to be so-called "clutch player". If clutch means shitting his pants in clutch moments - that's OK.

Safin had 3 match points in the TB: 7:6, *8:7, 9:8.
He was leading 5:4 and 6:5 in games in that set.

Fantastic, Robin!



Haase = Giant Killa!!!

Safin... won 1st set, up a break in the second, three MPs...

This will hurt Safin, atleast not as bad as losing to Hidalgo Rome 2006

Well the wrong Safin did indeed show up today...........Good win for Robin, especially as he had such a fight and saved a matchpoint.

He's rather un-Dutchman-like in this regard. He's got some fighting spirit in him, this lad.

Guess this proves how a win against Ferrero doesn't mean much these days.
