Bit of a let-down, this match. I expected quite a bit more of it, judging from the Safin-Gonzales match. (understatement alert!
Rafa didn't need to do anything special, and imho, he didn't do so either. A routine, solid performance. Congrats, Raf!
Safin was just... pathetic. Sorry, no other words for it. You know he's in a major mess when his serve stats are worse than Rafa's, who isn't actually anything near to being a 'big server'.
Time to Leave the Building, Marat... alas.
