That was really really bad, the first set was awful from both and then Stepanek lifted his game a bit and Marat got terribly worse, that forehand

Great match with both fighting tooth and nail. No doubt there's some blood left out on that court now.

Hurry up and retire Marat, so we don't have to watch you not caring and whining anymore.

"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."

2004 Paris Masters Series final:

Marat Safin over Radek Stepanek 6-3 7-6 6-3



But you obviously didn't watch that cause he was too busy thinking about beating Federer at the 2005 AO

UGH! Marat was hitting some nice winners here and there (11 in the 1st set), but really started losing it mid-2nd set. He couldn't handle the heat, and was pissed at losing chances on Step's serve to try to win in straights. The self-destruction went on and on and on... there will be a lot of vodka flowing later.
