Yeah, me too, big fan of both (Marat and Nalby). I think he would have defeated Lopez in the 3rd round. Would have been nice to see him against Nadal.

Safin's cross-court backhand is the equal of Djoker's & his backhand down the line was better.

Re: Peak Safin vs Peak Nadal in Hardcourt slams

Safin power and offense on the backhand is far superior to that of Nole's and the opposite is true for defense.
