YAY!

Im SO annoyed though! Channel 7 wont broadcast Marat's match

Like honestly.. hes the only one to have won the AO out of all of them (correct me if im wrong ), they need to get their priorities straight!

Marat Safin

Re: Marat "Down-under" , The Kooyong and AO thread



Marat won his first match of the year

Defeated Andy Murray, 6-1 6-4

He's in the Semi's BAAAAAAAABY , facing Ducky there

Little match report:

In the first set, Marat was playing BRILLIANT , gorgeous drop volley's, cross court forehands, BH DTL, net approaches
Very aggresive play

My guess was also that Andy wasn't fully awake too but Marat steamrolled over him in just 24 minutes

in the 2nd set, Andy was more awake, and gave Marat a bit more of a fight, but still all the assets in Marat's game were still there and the set was in the pocket in just 39 minutes with only 2 games where he was a tiny little bit in trouble

Really worth waking up for at 5.15 am ... didn't regret it at all
