To be honest, after the first set i was thinking that marat was going to choke again, he was serving really bad, more double faults than aces, but after that, he started to play better, now, win the next round and then kick nadals ass

Exactly my sentiments, I was just thankful he didn't go out in the first round.

Lets see if we can make it past the second round at a AMS in 2007. Thanks.

Maybe he can exorcise some unpleasant ghosts here this year - like losing to Mathieu in R1 when he came in with a virus that was making him dizzy last year from the medication.

even though you are probably right (sadly) but I have a feeling that even if Marat beat Fed and Nadal in a row you would still keep on saying that Marat is finished ;)

So what???
Marat lost to Whitehouse past summer. He can lose to anyone, to everyone. And he barely beats the same player twice in a row. And that was Davis Cup. And that was in Moscow. And that was indoors. And that was Mathieu playing the deciding rubber...

It would have been really annoying to miss Marat at an AMS event.

Now would it be humanly possible for him to win his next match so I can finally get to see the match-up with Nadal I have anticipated so much over the last 2 years.

But even if it were to materialize I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up like the Nadal-Roddick IW semifinals- hyped up, much anticipated and ended up being a one sided boring affair. :rolleyes:

The hypothetical match would be great to watch back when Marat was playing like in 2004-2005 but I think he has lost a step after his injury and does not have the consistency to challenge Nadal over an entire match. The most interesting thing is that it would only be the 2nd match for Nadal on clay, a time where he could be vulnerable.

Jarkko, Jarkko... Safin was a tough match-up, but he should have won. This year hasn't been all that good. I'm still hoping Jarkko would reach the top ten, but I sometimes feel that he has reached his maximum level. There are many young players coming and Jarkko's game hasn't really developed lately.

J'torian, i'm with you...pretty dissapointing after such an encouraging thread title (P.s if that's really u in you avatar...i want your babies)

Anyway, unless Rafa's "foot problem" becomes 100 times worse, Fluffy will get a whoopin'....

My only concern for Nadal up until the final (where i would guess he meets Feddy) is this stupid ongoing clay court "run".... i'm very much hopeing it's all forgotten about now and he can concentrate on titles and not records...
