Safin clowns his way past Gong 6-4 6-4

Had so many chances to win it a lot easier but he decided on giving his fans more tennis to watch for an extra three quarters of an hour.

Gong can hit a pretty good ball but tactically he was all over the place, Tursunov style at times.

doesn't posting results too early here mean that you will get some serious warnings?

Seemed a bit more than just relaxed, Marat did. And Gong was really poor at times.

Nice draw Marat has here. Today he would have lost to most top 100 players.

He'll have to raise his game next round or hope Cilic/Berdych have one of their off-days.

Don't understand how an idiot like Safin can still put pressure on himself when there's no pressure to have, what a dick.

it's frustrating really, the guy is supposed to enjoy his farewell touneys and play pressure free tennis, he has nothing more to prove at this stage so why getting all this nervous and not enjoy his time? >_>

Re: Safin clowns his way past Gong 6-4 6-4

You two are both fools. Marat doesn't get nervous, he gets ahead of himself/apathetic. When he is erving for a match, he expects his opponent to bend over and give up (sort of like how he always does...). Unfortunately, he is not good enough to pull these stunts anymore.

Actually...apparently he is. I'd just like to point out that every player he has beaten this year has lost to a 3/4 retired player who no longer trains or cares and is simply finishing out the season to collect a last few pay checks.

HA in the face of all of those players and their fans and all the haters.
