Comparing him with Federer in the last 3 yrs the head to head titles is 17 to 4. Hardly what I call a rivalry. And as for his great indoor play, he hasn't won any titles there either other than two TMS in late 2004 where Federer was missing.
You may be right. I don`t really care ..... He really entertains me, plays a great tennis, is charismatic,etc,etc.....(and sexy). I don´t think we can say that of most tennis players
I love tennis, and titles (OF COURSE!!) are important, but it`s about entertainment, too
And if about entertainment we`re talking, I would never miss a Safin-Federer match!!!
BTW, you can`t say he didn`t won any title in 2003 without explaining what happened to him that year: he hardly played 6 months and had several injuries!!!

The more ppl will think Marat is not a threat to win a title , the more chances he'll probably have to win some.
when anyone expects anything from him, he wins a title!!!!
