Safin is a toothless tiger

Time after time I keep hearing about how Safin is a "dangerous floater" and "nobody wants to draw him in the first round." BS. He's not dangerous at all, he's just a bad player now. The people who do draw him in the first round aren't scared of him and usually beat him (unless they're Russians).

He won against Gaudio a few days ago who is playing in the quarter tomorrow. So he cant be THAT bad.

Isn't that a "paper tiger"? ;)

Funny that, I considered using the phrase "paper tiger" instead of "toothless tiger." Opted for the latter!

Either way, he's about as "dangerous" as a baby kitten.

People here seem to have a problem with Marat Safin! There's not a week without a thread criticizing Marat...
He's been out 7 months,just give him some time! You didn't see him play in Davis Cup aganst France, otherwise you wouldn't say it!Last week, he beat Gaudio in QF...

Marat is used to losing when he's supposed to win but when nobody expect nothing from him he wins.

Amon, your attempt to defend Marat and try to prove that he IS dangerous is no less stupid than the thread itself. Only Marat can prove Fed=ATPTourkilla wrong. So let's wait and see.

safin will always be top 10 killa.

thats just how it works.

he was out for a long time in 03 and came back strong in 04, same with 06.

we don't know if he will be back strong this year or the next years...
i know just that he spoiled his career instead of winning 2 or 3 GS because he wasn't serious at the beginning ( women, drink ( maybe vodka),...) in 2001-2002.
but i hope he will be back more strong the next years because i love a lot the real safin game

The only thing Safin can kill is his brain, and it's already been coroded.

:rolleyes: Were you drinking with him to say so? The guy finished #11 in 2001 (and he has injury) and #3 in 2002. He was probably not too serious but if you say that he was drinking etc you give too much credit to his talent and basically insult all other players who were in top 20.

when I said that he spoiled his career, i want say why he didn't win 2 or 3 GS because he was able during this period, you know

in addition, during 2001-2002, he didn't have a champion way of life...
2003, it's different because of his injury.

but don't worry, i'm a safin fan but just disappointed that he hasn't the prize list which he deserves.
