Congrats Marat! :) :D .... and Tim also, played a better 2nd set, Marat at the end just could step it up better in the tiebreak....

:worship: Well done Marat, nice fight Tim and it was a good performance in his very first TMC debut, even though he went 1-2 in RR matches. This is really awesome, the top 4 players making it through to the finals. The tour would be awesome if these 4 would actually be able to beat eachother any time, but with Federer playing so well, it won't happen yet.:( Anyways best of luck to Safin vs Federer I hope it's a good match, ditto with Roddick/Lleyton.:D

Safin needs to pick up his game. He had almost no aces and low% 1st serves.

I agree, Naldo, after all of the odd things that have happened this season, it feels right to have the top 4 going at it in the SF of the YEC :)

Now let's hope the weather tomorrow will cooperate.

Henman kept attacking Safins backhand and kept getting passed. After watching that surprised Henman has managed to beat him in the past as he really had nothing to attack Safin with.

Did you also see Tim's 8 aces? :eek: Marat just couldn't take his 2nd serve even! And Tim wasn't receiving that badly, plus his volleying, Marat's volleying was horrible BTW. There were always 40-30 games on Marat's serve while Tim kept his serve much easier in the 2nd set. Marat started well in the 1st set but then..... Good TB though! :yeah:

I just watched the tape delay.

Good 2nd set, Tim! :D Good tournament! :D

MARAT!!! :dance: :dance: :dance: Good win on a bad service day. You won the TB!! :bounce:

Now rest and leave everything on the court against Roger!

Gooooo Marat! :woohoo: :bounce:

I'd say that he doesn't look scary in that pic. His eyes say this: "what can i do to beat you? WHAT CAN I DO?" They also show great will.
Henman is good... I'm becomming his fan.

There's only 2 weeks a year I don't want Henman to win (around the time I want to punch Sue Baker and John Lloyd), the rest of the year I admire his skills and spirit!
