safin won't play any tournement before wimbly

In the German version of the match report, it is said that Marat will prepare now for Wimbledon and that he is NOT going to play another tournament before Wimby.

this information i got it from safinatorboard

http://on.starblvd.net/cgi-bin/bbsm...t_safin&tr=1548


Sweden´s Jonas Bjorkman needed 145 minutes to post a dramatic overtime victory over fifth seed Marat Safin (picture) from Russia. Bjorkman, after wasting three match points in the second and saving one in the third, ultimately grabbed a tight 6-2, 6-7 (3), 7-6 (4) win. (picture: pmk)
After dominating the first set 6-2, Bjorkman cruised to another 5-4 lead when he squandered three match points to allow Safin back into the match. The Russian´s serve would hold, though, and he fired three great returns to gain his first break for a 6-5 lead. However, Bjorkman immediately returned the favour – just to find himself stumbling in the tie-break again. (picture: pmk)

In a hard-fought third set, there were no break points prior to the tenth game but Safin prevailed again. Bjorkman, down 6-5 and serving, then saved one match point before wrapping up the issue in the tiebreak, where he came back from a 3-1 deficit to clinch a 7-4 win. “It´s very frustrating to lose like this,” Safin said afterwards. “It was a lottery in the end and he made some great shots as well as the big points.”

“I´m no fan of grass and I´m not enjoying it,” he added. Bjorkman was “pleased to beat such a quality player in my first match on grass.”

In the day´s other action, second seed Rainer Schuttler stormed to an easy 6-3, 6-2 victory over Jan Hernych, while fourth seed Dutchman Martin Verkerk was sent packing following a 7-5, 7-5 defeat at the hands of Spaniard Fernando Verdasco. 2003 Gerry Weber Open finalist Nicolas Kiefer won the All-German meeting with budding Lars Burgsmueller in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4.

Sweden´s Joachim Johansson edged compatriot Robin Soderling 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-3, Russia´s Mikhail Youzhny toppled Germany´s Florian Mayer 6-7 (4), 6-2, 7-6 (2), and Italy´s Andreas Seppi defeated Russia´s Nikolay Davydenko 7-6 (5), 2-6, 6-3.




and this is what he said:
"You had a match point in the third set, nevertheless you lost the match. Why that?
I don’t know, it is how it is. The win was one point away, second service. I’m not satisfied with the return that followed. This result is really frustrating for me. I had still some problems with the blisters on my hand, but all in all it was ok. Until Wimbledon it will be completely healed.
You lost the match, but could you get a bit confidence after this tough fight?
No, not really, I’m not. With that kind of results it’s hard to get confident. I’m really not enjoying playing on grass, also not in Wimbledon.

Did you expect the strength of Björkman?
Yes, he beat me four times, showed great tennis. I’m obviously a really comfortable player for him. Today he hit a couple of good returns, he served well and he made a lot of big points with which I did not have any chance to play. Also the luck was on his side."

Re: safin won't play any tournement before wimbly

jep he canceled Rosmalen for sure now

"And how to say this one? The Russian one, doesn't have a bad one also. What is his name, the young one, the tall one? This guy, you know (laughter)? The one not playing too bad. He beat once Sampras in the finals of US Open. Do you know him (laughter)? Safin, maybe Safin? I mean, I don't know, I consider myself I don't have a bad backhand. Not super, but I'm working on it."

VAMOS

Marat&Rafa
* a little bit more 4 marat because he needs it *
