Shanghai R2 : Berdych def. Safin 3-6 6-4 6-4

Berdych up *4-1 in the 3rd set, Safin gets it back to 4-4, then lost serve and Berdman was able to get it done.

Hope Safin can have a good event in Moscow.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Marat couldn't move a lot either. But what a loss, should've finished him off at the beginning of the second set.

Why didn't Safin shake hands with Berdych at the end of the match?

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Re: Shanghai R2 : Berdych def. Safin 3-6 6-4 6-4

They are doing a presentation for him at the moment, not sure he really wants to be on the court at the moment.

The choice of "Wild Thing" as the song.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

2nd set bp stats : 1/1 Berdych, 0/7 Safin
And also marat reminded his capability of making useless comebacks.(ouanna at RG from 0-2,lapentti at Monte Carlo from 1-5 at final set TB)

Re: Shanghai R2 : Berdych def. Safin 3-6 6-4 6-4

Bizarre match. At the end of the 1st set it looked like Berdych was close to retire from the match as he could barely move properly. Got treatment for knee & hip. You'd think Safin take advantage of this in the second set, but no, he managed to implode himself...

Third set saw Berdych blowing a 4-1 lead, with Safin evening up the score to 4-4, whereafter Safin once again manages to lose his own serve and the match. Like I said, bizarre.

Congrats, Tomas...

Ok, so Sadin didn't shake hands with Berdych because presumably accused him for simulating an injury Nothing new, Safin did the same with Almagro.

Did you even see how Almagro behaved in that match?

He's been signing autographs now for ages.
