Steps v Safin next, nice match-up between two entertainers.

Least this result rested a ghost from Cincy four years ago when it started to go wrong for him physically.

Good job, Marat. He just won me a tenner. Risky betting on Safin, but he was solid as a rock in that breaker.

Solid as a rock in tie breaker, for once.

Wow, Marat won a TB. :eek:

Never thought I'd see that again. Could be his last TB win of his career.

Good luck against Steps.

Marat played good Tennis.

Marat won 78% 1st Serves & 76% 2nd Serves

his forehand was poor though

33 unforced errors and about 30 were probably from his forehand.

i think he hit about 26 winners in the match.

Marat played better than usual. He choked when serving for the 1st set at 5-4, but held on his next service. A lot of errors from both. But Marat played a good TB. :)

I hope Robby plays well at the USO and gets a WC for New Haven. :hug:

Go On Marat!

You decided to just stick with "beats" huh? HA HA!

I think Marat actually played pretty well and really held his nerve when he lost his serve at 5-4 and again in the TB. Maybe a sign of good things to come?

when he hits the forehand the only thing you can do is pray it lands in,no control at all on that side:o

I don't think anybody with only 7 winners in a 24 game match should get to play the USO.

while it wasn't Marat's best match, he had some amazing shots (like anyone doubts his shot making abilities). Service was good obviously... But I was most impressed with his return of serve - even on the FH side - looked really solid.

Davai Marat! He better beat Stepanek!!!

forehand was better then against monfils and haas but its still horrible compared to 2000-2005. even compared to 2006.

Seems like Ginepri his been around for years, yet he hasn't aged a bit. Still with the same muscle shirt and backward baseball cap. His game hasn't changed either.

7 winners by Ginepri?? :spit: No wonder old man Marat beat him, he was shit. Anyway good win for Safin, I guess. Needs some wins before he retires.

Good job Safin! Closed out the match with well-executed tie-break.

Safin won a match-ending tiebreak?

I may swoon like a mid-Victorian lady witnessing a man pissing into her bed of petunias.

Safina beating Ginepri is not really a surprise is it. Was it Safin or Safina who beat Ginepri :confused: :devil:. Ginepri is a mug of the highest order these days. Hopefully Sexy sends Safin packing.
