Re: Agassi vs Safin

Hmmm... some people say Safin was a bit injured, but he still played fantastic last night and he has his chances... but I would say Agassi has the edge, I don't think he's tired and he's really confident... but we never know what can happen out there!!! Good luck and success to both players!! GO!!!

Re: Agassi vs Safin

Safin all the way!!! Agassi, like Roddick, made a mistake of playing only easy matches. No way Andre is prepared for Marat.

Anastasia Myskina, Marat Safin thank you.

Re: Agassi vs Safin

I voted I dont know
If I was forced to choose I would choose Safin because of fatigue but on the other hand Agassi is almost 10 years older

Re: Agassi vs Safin

I don't know. But I'll be behind Andre, as if you didn't know that.

Re: Agassi vs Safin

Agassi has a comfortable H2H, 3:1. Plus, he's long in less hours and he always is strongest at the beginning of the season.

I forgot (or maybe I didn't know ) that an 18-year-old Marat had bumped Agassi out of the 1st rd. of the 1998 French Open...

They haven't played each other in 3 1/2 years, so it should be good if Marat isn't too pooped. Who knows? If Ferrero could log in the same amount of time and beat Agassi on hardcourts at the US Open...

Re: Agassi vs Safin

Depends on how much Marat has left in the tank, he looked positively exhausted by the 5th set of todays match...I hope he gets to the finals and makes up for the disaster that was the 2002 final!

Re: Agassi vs Safin

I haven't seen the roddick/safin match yet, so I can't comment on Marat's condition or form (except that he obviously is doing something right, lol!)

Andre was striking the ball awfully well in that first set against Grosjean. When he's playing like that, only a handful of people can stop him. However, I think Marat is one of those "handful."

Marat has what it takes to beat Andre, but the question is whether he can sustain a high enough level for that long a time.

Hope it will be a good match!

Go Andre!!!

Re: Agassi vs Safin

Marat's sure gotta turn it up, Andre isn't gonna make the errors Roddick did. But Andre won't serve like Andy. I don't know, but I'm hoping for a great battle!

Go Marat!! Do the same in the Comeback Year as in the Breakthrough Year!

Re: Agassi vs Safin

Andre in straights.

Marat is going to have to play absolutely perfect tennis to beat Andre on this surface.

Marat should win. Agassi is not invincible although most people here think he is on the Rebound Ace. Marat has all it takes to destroy Agassi. Forget the H2H, Marat lost most matches because he choked but if he is ready to play, it will take someone of equal ability to beat him.
