Re: Useless Marat loses again

Yeah, that sucks. Especially after pulling out that 2nd tiebreak. He had 10 more winners but self-destructed on his serve. Well, he didn't do anything last year either.

On to the clay season

Re: Useless Marat loses again

i dont know if this right, but i think his AO open final may be a one off for this year. somehow i dont see him going that deep in another slam this year

Re: Useless Marat loses again

Marat needs to improve his ranking. And he needs to play some smaller tournaments so he can get on a roll again. Safin really needs to hold a singles title trophy over his head again. If Marat can win an ATP title before Roland Garros his confidence will grow.

As long as Safin stays healthy he is dangerous. But his inability to keep his good Australian Open form is dissapointing.

Egalite!

Re: Useless Marat loses again

improving your rank only happens if you beat journeymen pros like Spadea.

Marat
he just cant get it together in tour events.

5 set tennis in slams gives him time to mess about and win.
and here it doesnt.

Marat has to focus and squash these players in 2 sets, but he always makes life harder than it should.

"Why win in 1 hour when i can lose in 3" ???

Re: Useless Marat loses again

Spadea news!!!

"He just said on TV that he knew these courts so he knew which way the wind would swirl on important shots and then gave one of those mysterious Spadea smiles!"

VINCE ROCKS!!!

I wish I could rap and be mysterious like him.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

I agree, the only best of 3 set matches he's won this year (2) have been against qualifiers, best of 5 give him time to recover from his brain cramps after he loses a set or a tb or whatever. Maybe AO was just a lucky break...

whatever it is he needs to get over it cos he needs to defend his points in Barcelona, the Estoril Open is next for him lets just hope he remembers how to play on clay

Naldo, you're touching!
Marat is playing BADLY!!!!!!!! I hope it won't be another horrifying season for him!

I suck at TT so there's no reason to brag with my 1st round exits :retard:
And I adore Radiohead

Re: Useless Marat loses again

Please, give VINCE some credit! Just because Marat lost doesn't mean Vince didn't play good! He beat Roddick this year and finally won a singles tournament!
