I hope he wins this title that has so far eluded him so much, I remember in 2002 he was in such an euphoria after beating Federer in the quarters (for the 1st time in his career) only to lose his following match.

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women

Re: Safin battles it out, def. Tipsarevic 7-6(5) 3-6 6-4

My thoughts after watching this match:

* First of all, this was the best live stream I've ever had. It buffered only twice the entire match. The sound quality was great too. Good job to the Kremlin Cup website.

* Tipsarevic really should have won this match in straight sets. He had 2 set points in the 1st set, and he was up a break in the 3rd. I'm a Safin fan, but I really felt sorry for Tipsarevic. Overall, I felt Janko was the more consistent player, dictating the points more.

* But all credit to Safin. In the end, this is exactly the type of match he needs. Something to test his nerves.

*This wasn't a great match, but it was an entertaining one. The first set was high-quality, the second set was a bit of a dud because of Safin's oafishness, the 3rd set was really a test of nerves and Safin (surprisingly) came through.

* The Moscow crowd really helped Safin, but not necessarily in a negative way for Tipsarevic. Although they clapped/got excited when Janko made some errors, I didn't find it offensive at all. Safin could have let his head go in the 3rd set, but somehow the crowd didn't let him oaf. I have a feeling that had this match been played in a city other than Moscow, Safin would have lost.

* Who was the umpire? Because he's now my favorite umpire. I found it funny how he kept shushing the crowd to keep quiet.

* This is the first time in a long while I've seen Janko and now I know who he reminds me of.. Bart Simpson (in a good way). He always has this "I didn't do it" look on his face which I find really endearing. He's now officially replaced Olivier Rochus as my favorite short player (well, he's 5'11'' so he isn't really short, but he seemed short shaking hands with Safin). I'm now a new fan, and considering his ranking is at a career high, I'm hoping he'll continue doing well in the Tour.

* Even though they say the camera adds 10 pounds, Yevgeny Kafelnikov didn't look as fat on TV as he does in pictures. Maybe he's losing weight to join the seniors tour?

* I think that Safin should stick with Volkov as his coach. I don't think he needs a "coach-coach" like Lundgren. IMO, what he needs is a "coach-friend" like Volkov to calm him down, and control his nerves.

* Why don't I ever see Safin's dad watching his matches? I saw his mom and Dinara, but where's Mr. Safin?

* Barring major upsets in the semis tomorrow, Final looks set to be between Davydenko and Safin, which will be very interesting, to say the least.
