Davai Marat!! Looks like he played really well, as you can see by the stats:

Yes, he did play well. Also, the Chinese crowd is really supportive of him. Feels almost like a cult following.

if safin got his first serve in 63% of his career he'd have won many slams, it for sure is his biggest weakness (getting it in)...

tell me about it lol... It was actually much higher (over 70%) until the end of the match when he threw in a couple of df's and almost lost serve. What would his match be if he didn't make everyone just a bit nervous about another meltdown?

It isn't his last tournament. You'll find in his presser he emphasises he still has 4 more tournaments to go, finishing in Paris.

Nice comfortable win. It's been a long while since he's had one of those.
