They have never played each other but I think it will be a good match.

I say Safin in four close sets.

hmmm not even sure who i want to win this match. both players need a big result in a slam but i almost think another early loss for Safin it may be time to close the book on his career as big time player.

i want to see the peak year 2000 like Safin vs Roger Federer on the US open courts. It'll be the best match ever.

hello mens tennis forums memebrs.
im going for safin and think he will win cause stan played a 5 setter and safin looks to be playing better.lets all hope marat gets his movement back to a good levelcasue thast when he was at his best when he was moving so fast.

I hope this one goes to 5 sets, then Stan the man can't lose as he has a 7-0 record in 5 setters :cool:

Marat's 5-set-record is not bad either. :p Go, Marat!

Marat got very lucky with his draw. What he needs is confidence, and this draw can give him some.

either safin wins or something happens like he throws his racket after the umpire or something

:confused: Anyway....

Can't see Safin losing this unless he plays some bad tennis, on an average day he takes this match.

Thats exactly the thing to be afraid of :haha:

Safin can trash him, but if Wawrinka wins this it wont be in straights.
Safin in 4 or 5. :cool:

This is a tricky match for Marat, but he plays well on this surface, so I say Marat in 4 or 5.

Burrow
08-30-2007, 04:20 PM
See, I don't think this is really all that tricky, Wawrinka hits quite big, not massive. Doesn't move great, and can fall away mentally, although he has definately improved mentally, I see this as a pretty good match up for Safin, I can't see it going to 5 sets.

Safin. Can't see an upset here.

Wawrinka has some good shots - especially on his backhand side but he is too inconsistent to trouble Safin. Also Stan will find it difficult to deal with Safin's power game on this surface. Safin in 4.

I love how people always say Safin is past him but vote for him to win in every poll.
