Safin defeated Jan Hernych in the 1st round, not a tough opponent but a very consistent one. Safin was very rusty but made some beautiful volleys and BH DTL shots :hearts:

In second set he got passed at the net and squeeled :lol: So good to have the big man back playing and entertaining. Hopefully he will get better as the week progresses.

Although safin made a few errors here and there, he looked pretty impressive. The timing and the feel were there

He was definitely a bit rusty at the beginning, but Hernych wasn't doing much either. He got better as the match went on and ended up playing some good points. Great win, and it's nice to have him back, definitely.

I'm glad his first match back was a win. Good job, Marat.

Good job.

Welcome back Marat, i've missed you.
I don't expect him to conquer Cincy, honesty i thought the first round would be his last. Did he look bothered by his knee or anything?
