Safin played quite well and amazingly seemed quite motivated throughout the match.

Did they ask him about what happened in the post-match interview?

Hahah they did, but he didn't seem real keen on giving them the story.

so what did he say?

He said he got into some trouble in Moscow and that it did look a lot worse.

I saw the beginning and he was being outplayed from the ground by Bolelli. You can't expect Bolelli to break though.

why,marat,why?

I missed the beginning but in the rest of the match Bolelli seemed to be playing poorly, with Safin being surprisingly consistent.

Safin even said in his post match interview that this is almost for certain his last season. He also said that he 'won' the fight in Moscow... Watching him play doubles with his sister now.

I'm glad he decided to try for this match because he is half-assing the doubles. Some of these volleys are just pathetic. :o

Decent win for Safin, although the black eye most likely came from him being beat up in a night club or somefin, decent result although only exho

Bolelli's disliking for big servers is almost on a level with GlennMirnyi's hatred for pushers... :scared:
