Safinator Def Navarro 6-3 6-3 6-4

Good Win played well to be honest moved much better then usual. something like 36 winners and 26 unforced errors.

yes he did play well. Very emotionally composed as well. Navarro fought hard but against a consistent Safin, it was not enough.

He looked completely disinterested out there. If you don't want to play, then don't.

Served well, but in the third set that's pretty much all he did. Congrats though; if he can fulfil his potential he can go far.

Navarro is a funny player, he pushes himself into the net but he isn't a good volleyer at all. Many baseliners have better volley technique than the Spaniard.

me too, but I saw only parts of the first set, so my impressions might be wrong.

You know, it's hard to stay focused against guy who you know, won't do any damage to you. Anyway, good win, I liked it and I am looking forward to the match against Federer.

That was not my impression at all. Are you sure you're not mistaking the serious, composed Marat for a disinterested one?

Marat played ok for first round. More or less consistent with no lapses.. forehand held up ok.

Re: Safinator Def Navarro 6-3 6-3 6-4

what match did you guys watch??

it was a pretty crappy match overall with hardly any rallies except for the third set. marat looked bored, navarro looked like a future player with all the hustling and bustling to no avail.

Well, you might call him composed for the lack of tantrums and outbursts of temper. I thought he just looked plain bored.
