Rios vs Safin!!

WOWOWOW!! Good third round clash!!

Rios just bounced Moya back in convincent 7-5 7-5 win! Marat, as always playing good, but had some troubles to defeat Andrei. Rios or Marat???? Who'll win????

I really want Rios to win, even liking Marat more. I want Rios to comeback in style, and become more confident like the beginning of year, tho' he have a real BUT REAL test now...

Should be very exciting!

Nicolas Almagro ~ Igor Andreev ~ Fernando Verdasco ~ Jo-Wilfred Tsonga ~ Mario Ancic ~ Marat Safin

ON paper of course Marat is the favourite, though I would like to see Rios go through. He needs some confidence boosting wins.

This was beautiful - I sat in the scorching heat the entire match.

It was soooo good. Some flashes of Rios of old - no one cuts corners, creates angles, and puts together a point like Rios does, just incredible.

Safin as well, was playing wonderfully.

It was good untill Rios took an injury break up 6-5, with Safin to serve in the 3rd - Rios wasn't the same after that.

He wasn't moving well anymore, and played a bad tie break

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Becca: Sounds like you had a good day yesterday.
Pleased to hear Rios showed some of his old brilliance. Hope this gives him confidence for the next t'ment a& trust the injury is something very small
