RG R1: Safin def. Sidorenko 64 64 64

Sidorenko was up 4-2 in the third but choked away the lead. Marat had some awesome outbursts today and didn't play well but it was enough to get the job done.

An adequate performance by Safin, but nothing to trouble the top guys. His glory days are long gone.

Sidorenko was up 4-1 and Marat, unlike Verdasco, did not promise to be a threat to the top guys He won and that's all that matters. GL in the next round, Marat!

6-4 6-4 6-4 against Sidorenko. With this play it would be 4-6 4-6 4-6 against f.e. Verdasco

for the result, but I missed the entire match It never showed up on RG SB and whenever I tried to start the stream on Tennis Channel, it was just blank. Twilight zone.

It did.

Obviously nobody expects great things from Safin in this tournament but given his poor results this year I'm glad he didn't go out in the first round. He loves this tournament, it's his last year and I even detected some smiles when he won. Good for you, marat!

Marat was sub-par, really. ... and in a bad mood.

Re: RG R1: M.Safin 6-4 6-4 6-4 A.Sidorenko

Whenever the end of the set was getting closer Sidorenko started to play more badly, allowing Marat to get out of tough situations. He did provide some entertaining defense though.

Almost lost a set to a bye

Even by Marat' standards it was a horrible match.
