Great thread. Great win. Great day.

Marat, you best not try and celebrate. Get yourself a massage and rest up. We got Andre next, child.

You're premature on the "Fed #1" call.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

As much as I'd like Federer to be number one, Ferrero is not out of it by any means! So we still have to wait and see

But you're right that Roddick is no longer up there - he'll be 2 or 3 on the new rankings of 2nd Feb.

Weird that I thought he was 24 already.

Happy Bday.

Congrats to Marat!! he was so calm he really deserved it

"And how to say this one? The Russian one, doesn't have a bad one also. What is his name, the young one, the tall one? This guy, you know (laughter)? The one not playing too bad. He beat once Sampras in the finals of US Open. Do you know him (laughter)? Safin, maybe Safin? I mean, I don't know, I consider myself I don't have a bad backhand. Not super, but I'm working on it."

VAMOS

Marat&Rafa
* a little bit more 4 marat because he needs it *

I'm an asshole. Just in case there was anybody who didn't already know

I lack direction.

if Roddick cant beat Safin in this event where he had every conceivable advantage then when can he beat him?

I wrote Safin off too.

Sometimes it feels so good to be wrong.

Egg, thanks for the BBC commentary. Especially enjoyed John Mac's interview with Marat. JMac gushes over Marat the way his brother gushes over Roddick. Last year he lamented "Marat? Marat? Where are you?" Now he knows (fishing and camping )

The highlight was JMac leading the stadium crowd in a rendition of "Happy Birthday".

Interesting that the English commentators were pro-Marat...
