Marat was interviewed on ESPN2 and he was asked about the possible matchup against Federer, and they were asking him about his opinion of federer's game. They asked him these questions during the third game of the third set when Federer hit some amazing points, and Safin was watching the game. :lol:

Marat did not sound confident about the next match. But maybe he is just trying to downplay his chances on purpose. Who knows

Depends on which Marat shows up. If he plays his best, he will win. But he probably won't.

I think that too :lol:




Personally i think Federer will be very nervous against Safin and if Safin comes out feeling no pressure he could take the first and then we could be in for a cracker of a match. I really want Safin to win this, i like Federer and all but the way Safin is playing atm i hope he can give me one last happy moment in his career :worship:

Safin in 0. Federer retires, citing exhaustion brought on by his epic match against Korolev.

Of course, I want Safin to win, and it would make everybody happy as it does usually when Safin upsets a top player. Brings back a lot of great memories too, but hum.. I have to try to avoid to jinx this so I voted Fed :o
But I'm hoping for a great, thrilling, long lasting match...

Jimnik
01-21-2009, 11:04 AM
I hope this doesn't get over-hyped. At best Safin will lose in three or four tight sets.

Unless Fed has another off-day (like vs Andreev @ USO) this won't be an epic.

Basic Boy
01-21-2009, 11:12 AM
If Fish can beat him nowdays, why not Safin on a good day? Marat in 4

Tennisman82
01-21-2009, 12:46 PM
The odds of Safin having one of those unstoppable days is very very low…besides his movement’s completely gone. He’s deteriorated significantly.

Federer in three, can’t see Safin taking one. It’ll still be an entertaining match.

Their head-2-head.

Dini
01-21-2009, 01:05 PM
Loving all the Marat will win hype. Yeah its true he is unpredictable, but I think you all know Fed is one tough cookie and if Safin is to beat Federer then he will have to play the best tennis of his life and expect Federer to be off slightly. Fed will be well prepared for this match of that I am sure and he won't let Safin get any rhythm.

So Fed in 3, max 4 if Safin plays well.

Dini
01-21-2009, 01:06 PM
Their head-2-head.

Well Safin did actually beat Rog in AO in 05...so your H2H is incorrect.

gusman890
01-21-2009, 01:10 PM
Ill be honest. I dont see Safin troubling Federer for more than one set.

Their history speaks reflects that. Safin had to play amazing 4 years ago to win 3 sets. Where as Federer normally wins like 6-2 7-5 6-3ish most of the matches (or it has that feeling to it).

shotgun
01-21-2009, 01:13 PM
Safin will make it close... for one set.

Burrow
01-21-2009, 01:14 PM
Where does this guy get the 14-7 head to head from? Marat's only beaten Federer twice and Federer doesn't quite have 14 wins over him...

OnyxRose
01-21-2009, 02:22 PM
Marat might trouble Fed for one set but eh, Fed in 4. I'd be ecstatic if I'm wrong but I don't see how Safin can win.

AnnaK_4ever
01-21-2009, 02:36 PM

it's 9-2 overall and 3-1 at slams :wavey:

Fed in 4.

I am still the same RFK. Fed will lose this tourny but to a man like Djokovic, Nadal or Murray.

Safin is too weak a clown to beat him. I am just being realistic.
