Well done Becker.

Marat never looked in the match really. Never even got to break point. Very flat from him.

Not good enough.

Never in doubt.
On fast surfaces Benjamin is better player than Marat.

Good luck in the semis, Benji!

He's probably sitting in the same plane as Gasquet :o

Thanks for flying with Air France.

Nice, I didn't expect that, seeing how he played in the DC. Now please spare us a boring final and defeat Karlovic. The way the croat is playing right now, this could be very difficult.

Once again: Becker plays faster tennis than Marat can handle. No surprise here.

Funny, I thought this was the same Safin that won the US Open and Paris Bercy a couple of times...

He should have no problem with fast indoor carpet.

It's hard indoors, first of all.

Since 2001 Marat just once has reached 4th round at USO.
As for Bercy the surface there is not fast, that's rather medium-paced court with high bounces.
Safin has never liked to play on really fast courts.

It was okay - I thought though that he was doing a good job of protecting it, especially on his service games - Safin wasn't getting into those much at all.

Bugger only knows why he didn't stay in SA and cross over to Brasil then :shrug:

Is this the new trend on MTF? No matter who's playing or what the result, every win is expected.

Everyone who's not delusional on Safin could expect this result.

Nothing strange seeing Marat losing in a MM event.

Considering Benni made big trouble to Marat in AO it didn't surprise me so much.

Well upside is that he picks up ranking points since he had none to defend :)

Becker served well, but Marat really returned like crap today. No real effort to concentrate and get the ball back into play. Just flailing away.

But he doesn't. He has to move past QF at small tournaments to gain some points. He can pick up points only during clay court season if he will play good at clay Masters.

I never said he was moving up in rank, only that he gained points ;)

In that case, you're wrong. He did receive ranking points.

I was going to ask about that! It's getting to the point where you can't even tell if they're being ironic or serious. :p

Anyway... ugh, the most disappointing item is Safin couldn't do anything on Becker's serve. Well, one must keep moving on the Safin train, I suppose.

a good Becker + fast court + strange schedule + slow Marat = defeat

the whole match lasted 1 hour :eek:

organisers also helped him to lose

I don't want to find excuses but the schedule was strange
the match started early afternoon but he finsihed his last match at night

I think he's motivated but something's still missing in his game
