Count on Safin to win a brutal 5-setter. Too bad he can't win regular matches these days.

Re: Safin def. Nalbandian 6-3 7-5 2-6 3-6 7-6 (6)

nice choke from 2 sets up

and then again at 5-2 in the breaker

but the stronger head case won

I was dying watching the scoreboard.

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Neither brought their brain to the match! Ah well, congrats Safin! Onwards and upwards.

YES! Safin really has so much potential. If he can just be OK physically AND mentally, he can do great things.

I'm just happy CBS decided to show us the end.

After two sets teh match was HIS, HIS, HIS and noone else's. If he lost that would have been one fucked up Marat Safin.. But he won, phew. mental block probably off him, I'm so glad.

Anastasia Myskina, Marat Safin thank you.
