Marat in Bangkok
So he made his third semis of the year. Still struggling, but making progress if you ask me. Still no confidence, but what else is new? Indoor season will allow him to get his ranking back up, and hopefully he can meet his goal of an AO 07 seed. He went into the US Open ranked 104, and after just that and Bangkok, he should be ranked in the vicinity of 60 with still nothing to defend. Patience and baby steps, I keep telling myself, patience and baby steps.
In old, old news, Roger, I wanted to see you play doubles with Rafa!
