Vegas RR: Safin d. Koubek: 7-5; 6-2

Kind of shaky early on with several errors.

Once Marat started moving the match was never in doubt. Didn't face a breakpoint at all in serve. Good stuff over all.

Funniest point of the day: Koubek hits a FH winner that looks long. No call. Marat points down, gives the linesman a look. Linesman at least 3 seconds late screams, "Long!" Koubek laughs, Marat laughs. No challenges.

Quote of the day: When asked if he had been to Vegas before, Marat responds, "Yes, I have been to Vegas spending money. Now I'm here to make money."

Good game ratio.

I believe, if Koubek wins today, he'll only need one set in his final match.
