Great win for Federer, maybe this will bring back his confidence which seems to be lacking lately.
Marat sweetheart, its about time you started doing well on Grass, you have the game, you just need to keep you hair on your head.

Great win for Roger against a tough opponent ! I wonder if any one here could see the match, and tell us any comments?

Roger Forever !

Sort of a close match on Federer's best surface and Safin's worst -- or so he says anyway .

More encouraging for Marat I would think than Roger.

I don't think his confidence has been lacking really. He's got the best win/loss record of anyone this year at 51-3 ! Of course beating Safin in particular after the AO loss must feel very good. If he would have lost again to Safin we would all be wondering what tricks Lundgren has taught Safin !

Roger Forever !

It was a great match....both players were dominating on their serves, but Roger did well to natch the key breaks.

Roger

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Fed def Safin 6-4, 6-7(6), 6-4

Gongratulations Federer, so effortlessly to the third title.

There was a funny moment in the first set - the exact reprise of Federer's AO semi-finals matchpoint. There was a drop-shot from Federer, a lob from Safin that fell on the baseline, and than Federer chased it and, I think on purpose, hit it between his legs. He smiled after that, and in the next game dropped his only serve... Got too carried away I would say.
