Safin vs Philippoussis

Who will take it?

Safin was on fire against Paradorn, 46 winners - 13 UE
Mark not far off against Beck, 47 winners - 19 UE

Safin leads h2h 4-1, but they havent played on Grass

Safin + Confidence = bad news for his opponents

but ofcourse Wimbledon + Philippoussis = who knows what can happen

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

...better to reign in hell than serve in heaven...

Re: Safin vs Philippoussis

LOL Auscon, I really don't know whom to vote. I just hope it's gonna be a wonderful match. I won't be devastated if Marat loses and can take care of his knee.

Re: Safin vs Philippoussis

In his interview, which was occuring during the Beck/Flip match, Marat said he wasn't 100% sure Flip would win. Marat had practiced with KB earlier that day. Should be a very interesting match.

Re: Safin vs Philippoussis

I'm leaning toward Safin since he played well at Halle and just beat Pdorn on grass. But I think it will be a close match.

QUACK IT LOUD....QUACK IT PROUD!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK TO: ANDY, HAAS, MARDY, BRYANS, JAMES, DJOKOVIC, MOODIE, ROBBY, MOYA, SAFIN, GICQUEL

Re: Safin vs Philippoussis

H2H: Safin leads Flip 4-1
Flip hasn't beaten him since 1999. If he loses again, he'll officially be Safn's pigeon (according to GWH).

Re: Safin vs Philippoussis

Even though Paradorn didn't play well, Marat's composure on court was very encouraging. He seemed very calm and collected unlike the Marat we usually get to see. I think his game is much better than Flip's game because he doesn't need to just rely on his serve. Also, his return of serve is quite good and could negate Flip's serve and volley game.

If Marat's knee holds up, Flip will say bye-bye to Wimbly.

Re: Safin vs Philippoussis

flip is a part time player and role model with no brain. his return game is one of the worst on tour. safin will rip him a new one.
