Marat Safin is not a threat to win tennis titles

If you look at his profile, he's won 7 titles in the last 5 years with none in 2003. Sure he can have some great matches but he's not the type of player that is a threat for a title, i.e. he can't go through fields without having a terrible day somewhere along the course of a tournament. Comparing him with Federer in the last 3 yrs the head to head titles is 17 to 4. Hardly what I call a rivalry. And as for his great indoor play, he hasn't won any titles there either other than two TMS in late 2004 where Federer was missing.

The more ppl will think Marat is not a threat to win a title , the more chances he'll probably have to win some.

Well, i agree with you. But he DOES win big titles when he's on and so he is always a threat if he gets on a streak.
In terms of dominanc and consistency, he is no rival to Fed. However he did beat him in their last match, ending Feds winning streak.
I love Safin for his unpredictability, just as I find Federer's consistency a little boring.
Long live marat and may he win many more slams!

Don't see the logic in your words- a player is not a threat for a title who has won 15 titles including 5 TMS and 2 slams.

And I have to remind you that he's injured in 2001 and 2003.

OK Fededer is the best. I got it. :rolleyes:

Do players always have to win 1837,5 titles in their careers? :rolleyes: Marat has won big titles. Look at e. g. Jennifer Capriati, she hasn`t won many titles but she has won some big titles including 3 Grand Slams, 1 Olympic Gold... She is a very solid player and has had a great career so far. I am convinced either of them, Marat and Jennifer, will win more titles soon... :D :cool:

You may be right. I don`t really care ..... He really entertains me, plays a great tennis, is charismatic,etc,etc.....(and sexy). I don´t think we can say that of most tennis players ;) I love tennis, and titles (OF COURSE!!) are important, but it`s about entertainment, too :) And if about entertainment we`re talking, I would never miss a Safin-Federer match!!! ;)

BTW, you can`t say he didn`t won any title in 2003 without explaining what happened to him that year: he hardly played 6 months and had several injuries!!! ;)

Thank you, uNIVERSE mAN!

The threat of Safin is that you don't know what to expect of him, when he's going to strike his opponent with sudden brilliance or play poorly. I for one didn't expect him to win the AO this year or defeat Fed, but he did with some brilliant play.
With other words he has the element of suprise. ;)

In 2003 Marat was injured of his left wrist, reason why he could not play most of that season and obviously he didn't win any title, he only reached the Godo's Final that year. :p

The minute other players underestimate Safin they are fucked. He went under the radar in the AO, everyone focusing on Federer, Hewitt and Roddick and look what happened. He has wonderful groundstrokes and moves very well for a man of his height.
Having said that Safin wake up already its getting annoying seeing all these youngsters coming up and you just partying away :smash: (Before I get attacked, the partying part is a joke. Although I think he maybe a little guilty of it)

So I'm still sticking to my original theory that Safin is this years RG's dark horse

couldn't have said it better myself. Had given up on him winning slams last year - thought he may get lucky with a MaSTERS title. Then, he wins PaRIS and Madrid, and then the Aussie Open.

Surely Safin is having an awful season, but to say he's no contender for major titles just doesn't make sense. Who has won more than 7 titles in the last 5 years? 10-20 players? Who has won more than 2 grand slams? Federer, Agassi...

Plus he's got great records against the top players, so he's always capable of winning tournaments. Problem is he's playing like shit at the moment and having difficulties winning matches against far lesser opponents right now. So if your thread was called "Safin no threat for RG" I would have agreed, but come US Open Safin might be right there with the best of 'm, who knows.

honestly speaking..Safin is a very unstable unpredictable player...so the more u dont expect him to win...the more he wins ;)

Yes,for Federer, I will appreciate his skills but I will not love him. And safin, he is more human I think, so I like him. :)
Of course, safin is not having a good time recently, but he will surely be competent in Roland Garos if he can controll himself better (but I doubt if he can) After all he is strong willed to win the FO.Hope him good luck. :worship:

So what’s with this Safin “secret” to beat Federer?

“You know, he knows so many secrets, it’s amazing: He knows everything,” laughed Federer, when reminded of the Russian’s boast that he knows the secret of beating the Swiss. “No, I am just joking. He is a good guy.

“Ferrero said he has a secret, Hewitt knows a secret, Safin knows a secret — they all know it. But I am still on top,” the Swiss replied.

But then, what is the secret of stopping the ‘Fed Ex’?

“You shouldn’t ask me, you should ask them,” he said. “I have no clue how to beat myself.

Concerning this one I'd say Marat Safin is a threat for everyone.

There is no doubt that the "ill-tempered" hippo is capable of serious damage and violence. He will stand up to RogerRabbit and has been known to bite tiny baby ducks in half.
Countless top players have lost their lives when the tournaments they were traveling in were attacked by the hippo.
By some accounts, the hippo causes more human deaths than any other wild creature in MTF, including rabbits, weasels, ducks, trolls and teeny boopers.

As for the thread itself, well universe man is the one who tried to suggest earlier in the year that Gaudio didn't deserve to be in the Top 10 as he'd won so few matches off clay, so no surprise here. The motto where Safin is concerned is expect the unexpected; I'm sure it annoys both fans and depreciators alike that when you expect him to do well he does badly, and vice versa. So after the AO everyone including me expects to see a new and more motivated Safin under the influence of Lundgren, doing well in tournaments where he has never done anything in the past, and it turns out to be the same old story. Now that people are beginning to write him off again we're probably due for a resurgence very soon, in fact it wouldn't surprise me at all if he were lifting the trophy two and a half weeks from now. One thing you can say about his prospects at RG is that he actually cares about the event, unlike most of the TMS events; he's said unequivocally that his goal is to win it, and that determination could help him against more natural claycourt players when he gets into a dogfight, as he assuredly will at some stage.

The injuries in 2001 and especially in 2003 have already been mentioned by others in this thread; given that he played little more than a dozen matches in 2003, the dearth of titles is somewhat forgiveable. That said, there is a definite pattern to his titles and his successful performances and it's become obvious by now that he will never have the consistency of a Federer, Nadal or Hewitt. Equally it's true that there isn't a rivalry with Federer as yet, but considering that Safin has never suggested there is or that he really wants one, it's hardly something you can attack him for. The idea of a Safin-Federer rivalry is the creation of the media alone, and Safin has rarely if ever shared the hackneyed viewpoint of the media on tennis. I remember that after last year's TMC match a journalist asked him if he was pleased about being able to push Federer so close after a successful comeback year, and he replied that he was more pleased about improving his ranking from 89 to 4 than in challenging one player, even if he is the best player in the world. That kind of wider perspective is a refreshing one.

I'm starting to sound like Safin's cheerleader here, it's not as though I'm a fan of him myself, but the thread title is stupid because Safin will always be a threat in future to win tennis titles; we just don't know when, that's all.

Perhaps the title of the thread should've been phrased as a question - not a statement of fact. I don't think many players shout for joy when they see Marat Safin is in their half of the draw. It's safe to say that if Roger doesn't win whatever tournament is being contested, pretty much any one of the other 9 top tenners could (depending on the surface). Talent-wise, I think Safin runs Federer pretty close. It's all the other sideshow stuff that lets him down.

Short Bus Girl forgot to mention herself, the Nalbandian troll.

Um, sorry, but I'm not the one throwing the thread off course like yourself, Queen Troll-abite.

Your statement would have been correct, if you had replaced "Marat Safin" with "Meeek".

Quite frankly, you're pretty stupid saying such a thing :lol:
Good luck with making correct conclusions in the future. :wavey:

Marat may not be a threat to win numerous titles in a row, but he can win (almost) any title any time. The only one I don't really ever see him taking is Wimbledon, but not because he has not got the game, he seems to be most uncomfortable there, and when Marat feels uncomfortable, a first round exit is no surprise.

I can't wait to see how Marat performs at this year's wimbledon. That may well decide if at all Lundgren is going to have any kind of impact on safin's career :rolleyes: .
