Good.

I would have been annoyed if he'd lost before the cameras arrived.

He will be number one by the end of the month.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Again.

Anyway, thank you for winning one, Marat. Make it two?

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

To be honest, after the first set i was thinking that marat was going to choke again, he was serving really bad, more double faults than aces, but after that, he started to play better, now, win the next round and then kick nadals ass

Exactly my sentiments, I was just thankful he didn't go out in the first round.

“I love tennis with a passion. I challenged Boris Becker to a match once and he said he was up for it but he never called back. I bet I could make him run around.”

Maybe he can exorcise some unpleasant ghosts here this year - like losing to Mathieu in R1 when he came in with a virus that was making him dizzy last year from the medication.
