*sigh*

So what's left for me, if these positions are already taken?

If Marat serves well and plays aggressive tennis, he can take out Grosjean tomorrow. And i do not see this scenario as highly unlikely. He just might.

Marat, FIGHT. You can do iT!

Anastasia Myskina, Marat Safin thank you.

Marat going to need his serve tomorrow against Seb. Hopefully, he'll come out aggressive and stay that way throughout the match.

Re: Grass kick-off...Marat wants to be Queen *cough, sorry* King of Queens 2007

Match preview from the Artois website:

Marat Safin v Sebastien Grosjean
Played--Safin leads 6-2


Marat Safin started on the tour in 1996 looking every inch like a player who might be a genuine threat on grass. He came out of Russia seemingly well equipped to do some damage to his rivals and within five years had become world No 2, winning seven titles in 2000 including the US Open. On grass that summer he worked with former British No 1 Tony Pickard, who had taken Stefan Edberg to Wimbledon titles, and was a quarter finalist here at Queen's Club. In 2001 he had his best Wimbledon by reaching the last eight where he fell to eventual champion Goran Ivanisevic. Safin's first match today brings him up against Sebastien Grosjean of France whose liking for being in London at this time of the year extends beyond the pleasure which he obtains from playing in the Artois. Grosjean has twice been a finalist here in 2003 and 2004. He hs beaten Lleyton Hewitt and Tim Henman here in the past and against that has been beaten twice by Andy Roddick. Two semi-final appearances at Wimbledon mark Grosjean down as a man who can play on anything and he is more than capable of giving the eighth seeded Safin a run for his money.

Verdict-Safin under early pressure

On Saturday I hit with Davydenko, but after 45 minutes I had broken two racquets so I left the court as I had none left. It was a short day at the office… - Marat Safin
