Only saw the end of it but a fantastic and dominant display against the tricky Belgian. Safin continues his climb back up the rankings.

Well done Marat!

i 'm so happy that he won

he seemed to be focused according to all the comments, i hope he will remain in this high focus state until AO2007 (at least :angel: )

Has anyone else noticed that in all Safin matches there have been regular ballkids, not the models? Maybe his camp requested that. :D :p

Wow, no drama in 2 matches in a row against descent players, that comes as a big surprise to me. it's the price you play for being his fan: a lot of surprises
(mostly unpleasent though).

but as usual i don't have high expectations for this tournament.

:haha: I knew he reminded me of someone or rather something

Yup noticed, I'm pretty sure it wasn't his own request :p

Missing the drama already? Don't worry there will be drama before this tourny is over :p
As for your expectations, let's hope he'll surprise you once again :)

If hypothetically he reaches the final here (damnit, now I'm gonna jinx him), anyone know what his ranking will be like? Considering he made the final last week too.

isnt it funny that the first time the IOM doesnt start a thread in an important tournament Marat does well?

Good news with the ranking. There is still hope for the big guy. I sense a huge thing here - maybe a final against Nadal?

I don't know if my heart could take that.
