I personally thought that Marat looked less rusty than Roger. What do you think?

But Roger is wiser, he took a loong rest for a minor injury while Marat took a relatively short rest for a major one...

Roger certainly will improve as he progresses

It is partly to do with who their opponents were. Blake played a hardcourt final only 2 weeks ago

Neither. I expected Federer to win, and I'm not impressed by anything Marat does unless he wins the tournament.

i guess marat, just because i didn't even think he'd win lol, roger didn't impress me at all but i'm assuming he'll get better after a few more matches

safin was looking good in the 2nd set. fed was a little pissed of at himself but of course pulled through..i'll go with safin but i'm biased!

Hard to say, Jan Hernych made a whole bunch of errors and has nothing to hurt his opponents other than consistency. Blake on the other hand has a monster serve and a huge FH.
Fed however was missing easy volleys and was aced quite a bit which is very unusual, Safin looked really shitty initially but stepped it up in the end.

Blake is way better than Hernych.

Nah. Fed just sucked and got aced much more than usual. Blake doesn't get too many freebies off his serve. He has a good serve, but its not monster-like
