It is tough. In the type of court where he needs luck the most he doesn't have any. But he'll do fine, I hope... It's his mind that spoils everything. He can beat all of those people or lose to any of them.
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.
Looks like an absolute SHOCKER for Marat. Every round a grass court specialist. He'll be lucky to beat Paradorn. But the way he's been playing (last Match v Fed shows he has class to live and hit with Fed) means he can beat everyone on tour except Fed
