Marat Safin beats Oli Rochus 6-4 7-6 !!!!

Is he starting to like Grass??
Go Marat!
Bring on the Semis now!

Q: You have been described as brilliant and unpredicatble, how would you describe yourself?

Marat Safin: Same as you said.


Marat: I couldn't beat him(Andy Roddick) here. Can you imagine if I beat him here, what's gonna happen (smiling)........

Q: So what would happen if you beat him here?

Marat: I don't want to think about it, what would happen. What would happen to the tournament, to the crowd, to the people? I don't know. I don't want to think about it.

It seems that Marat indeed found his touch on grass. That might make for an interesting final (Federer-Safin) and an interesting Wibledon. The more title contenders the better, so it's great Safin is in good shape now!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

i think the reason why hes doing quite well is that hes not expecting anything.. he plays freely without pressure whatsoever.. he just swings and swings and swings..

Well done Marat. Marat barely beat Rochus on his way to the 2005 Australian Open title so I'm not surprised Rochus played him tough in Halle. Udachi Marat!

Egalite!

Rochus

Interesting to see Safin doin' well on grass. Never quite understood why he sucked on it, because his game has all the weapons to succeed on grass unless his footwork is the worst ever on it, which I doubt.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc
.

I know! Yay! Go Marat. Now let's see if he can keep it up in the semis!

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??
