Win or lose, I dont care. The man on court is the genious from 2000. Ive seen many matches from Marat this year, and never this level. He is rocking Hewitt.

JUST WIN THIS MARAT! Its not over yet. Lleyton wont give up.

More than playing very well, better than what Ive seen in a long time, Marat was surprisingly CALM! :eek:
He was patient, chosing the right shots, always putting one more back on court, and playing the aggressive shots he likes ONLY in the perfect moments.

Amazing!

Wow, Marat really surprised me by how well he played all through this tourney. Finally, he shows me why he deserves to be in the top 3....whereas the past several months I think he didn't even deserve to be in the top 20 with those sucky performances :o

Anyways, Congrats to Marat Safin on his first title of the year.

Notice how well he plays if he keeps his "emotions" in check.;)

From the interview:

" Q. Fabrice Santoro said before the match that this final was going to be the No. 1 player in the world against the best player in the world. What do you think about that?

MARAT SAFIN: Thanks, Fabrice. Thanks very much. I still love him too ‑ very much. He's even better, he beat me six times (laughter). "
