Don't you know what happened with Safin at the Roland Garros? Really?

Well, The great Potito at his first Grand Slam, after beating Tursunov and Grosjean both in 3 sets was facing in the 3rd round the former number one Marat Safin, and he was going to win...

He was serving for the match (5-4 in the 4th set)...
...and the line-judge called a foot-fault on the match-point.
The second in 2 match, the second on a match-point; it happened with grosjean too, but that time he won. So, serve and volley with the second ball, great serve, good volley, but a miracle of Safin and was again Deuce.

And what did he do, the great Marat, in the game most important of the match, when they were 40-40???
He calls the medical aid!!!
When the match is going to end???
When Potito is 2 points from an historical exploit???
Yes, he had a Hand Injury...

Marat seems to say: look at my blisters...
while Potito seems to think many things.....

Anyway, you know how the match was over (Safin won 6-7(4) 6-4 3-6 7-5 7-5). He played great, but some other times he called the medical aid (in the most delicate moments, obvious...).
A very Fair Player, no doubt about it...

Potito is still looking for take his revenge
