Thank goodness for the serve... pretty much the only thing working. Great to see Marat thru, rather he loses to Juan than Thierry...

Now that is the heart of a champion. Playing like utter crap, but coming through. So proud of Marat. 24 aces.

it was ten times more painful watching it live, keeping it tight with Ascione of all the people says it all, flying errors, serve saved his ass this time, happy that he can retire in a match against Del Potro

Did he want to win saving match points for the sake of drama? That BH to give Ascione two MPs was unbelievably bad.

I wonder what it feels like to be down match points knowing it could be the end of your career.

Re: Paris R1: Safin def. Ascione 6-4 4-6 7-6(3)

Thank God! Midway thru the third set I thought I wanted Ascione to win purely for the hilariousness of it. But when it came to the match points, I realized I wanted Marat to stick around for another day. Anyway, I thought he was playing great in the first set especially early on in the set. But everything seemed to go awry until he randomly fired 3 aces to save MPs. Good luck against Delpo Marat!

Re: Paris R1: Safin def. Ascione 6-4 4-6 7-6(3)

Ascione played some good stuff in the second, he's a good player, a bit of a wasted talent, looked unbreakable at stages in the third but Marat...dunno how he managed to pull through.

We've seen so many bad losses after being a set and a break up this year that this is the first where he has managed to get himself back out the hole and it could be the last.

This win is as sweet as any this year.
