HELL YEAH

I read that to on another site.

Finally!!! I can't wait for a real fight to the finish between my favorite bad boys. The've played 6 times, they're tied at 3 wins each and each of their matches have gone the distance. I love it when Marat goes into fighting mode.

Bring it on boys and let's get ready to rumble!

GoLleyt, I totally agree. Even if Lleyton doesn't finish as #1 (which is unlikely to happen @ this stage), it would be Agassi, not Safin

Look, he just said he wants to and he is going to try. what is so funny about that? There are still 3 big tournaments left (Madrid, Paris, Masters Cup) and alot of points up for grabs. Anything can happen between now and then..

No need to be condescending guys. What I'm celebrating is Marat's fighting spirit. and we all know Lleyton knows how to fight for matches. So how can you not get excited when the two most exciting most emotional players on the tour decide to give it their all? The matches will be electric!

It's pretty obvious that it will be very hard to dislodge Lleyton from the #1 position but a hungry and confident Marat is a spectacular Marat not to be taken lightly.
The only problem with his decision to play every week is that he is leaving himself open to fatigue and/or a higher risk of injury.

Anyway, I hope they get to meet in the semis or the finals of Madrid/Paris.

Like I said before: BRING ON THE EXCITING MATCHES!!!
-Marat vs Lleyton
-Marat vs. Andre

It is just a shame that Marat, hewitt and Andre can't all be in the same group in Shanghai

That was one of the people I like would be able to make the finals out of the other group

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Its worth noting that Marat isn't even a safe number 3.

I'm not counting out him getting on a hot streak, and I admire him stating what he wants.

But if I'm not wrong, anyone in the top 10 practically are in reach of him no?

At the very last all the Spaniards are (can't you jsut see Costa winning an indoor masters series)

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

At least Marat sets a positive goal for himself.
