Tomas really had bad luck to run into Safin at the beginning of the tournament. Marat already got used to the surface because he had to come through the qualification.
As Karin already mentioned we saw him after he came from the practice courts and could talk to him for a moment. I didn't just wished him good luck for Düsseldorf and Paris, but also for Halle, where he has to defend a title. I said that I hope for a final against Federer there and Tomas had to laugh.
Really a very friendly guy and easy to talk to
