Marat Safin suffers as does the furniture after semi-final defeat to Roger Federer


By Mark Hodgkinson

Last Updated: 12:42pm BST 05/07/2008


Even the furniture is not safe when Marat Safin is on Centre Court. The Russian once suggested that it was perfectly acceptable to break a racket on court, and OK to smash a chair, but "you can't destroy a racket and a chair in the same match, as there has to be a limit - otherwise this is the tennis of a sick person". So Safin was not just trying to break frames in yesterday's semi-final with Roger Federer; he was also threatening to break his own racket-trashing rules.

For the first two sets of his straight-sets defeat, Safin kept it together. But, in the third set he showed what Novak Djokovic called the Muscovite's "mental instability". This was Safin's first appearance in the semi-finals of Wimbledon, and he played some decent tennis, but the 28-year-old could not deal with the brilliance from Federer.

There was no disgrace in that. With Bjorn Borg looking on from the Royal Box, Federer played the sort of tennis that demonstrated why he could tomorrow win a sixth successive Wimbledon title, which would take him past the Swede's five in a row. There was rarely a moment when Federer was in anything but total control.

But Safin was never going to go quietly. In the opening game of the third set, Safin attempted to kick a ball away in annoyance, but the ball rolled under his swinging foot, which drew a few laughs on Centre Court. But there was much more to come from Safin. He yelped and he bashed a racket against the grass. And then, just before sitting down for one change of ends, he whacked his racket with all his strength against a chair. Somehow the chair survived. Still, the umpire was obliged to issue Safin with a warning for racket abuse.

This anger towards inanimate objects is a family trait ; during this year's French Open, his younger sister, Dinara Safina, covered a line judge in flying, shredded geraniums after she took a swipe at a courtside flower-box. Safin probably was not far off a warning for 'furniture abuse'. "Marat is always very fiery as a character," said Federer, a 6-3, 7-6, 6-4 winner.

So Safin remains the sport's No 1 for stylish, entertaining tantrums. And his official ranking? He went into the tournament as the world No 75, but he has been on a fabulous run here, including beating Djokovic in the second round, and on Monday morning he will be back in the top 40.

Where does he go from here? Safin's talent for hitting a tennis ball has never been in doubt. He has a hulking physical presence on a court, a whipcrack forehand, and a hole-puncher of a serve. And that is what brought him the 2000 US Open title and the 2005 Australian Open title. But Safin has never found much consistency in his career.

Safin said: "I never lost my passion for the sport, otherwise I would have stopped a long time ago because for sure I'm not doing it for the money. We love to suffer and we love to win."

The Russian was certainly "suffering" on Centre Court yesterday. And so was the furniture.

Apparently Loserman is the first non-Canadian player to get a WC in Canada since Agassi in 1998.

Just received this news, if anyone's interested (I am very happy about it!!):

Superstar Siblings for Hyundai Hopman Cup
21st July 2008

PERTH. Sensational news for tennis fans as it was today announced that former World Number 1 Marat Safin and his sister Dinara Safina will join Australia’s Lleyton Hewitt and Casey Dellacqua at the 2009 Hyundai Hopman Cup in Perth. It will be the first time that the Russian superstar siblings will compete as a team together.

US Open, Australian Open & Davis Cup Champion, former World Number 1 and Russia’s leading male player for many years, Marat Safin is a crowd favourite. Currently ranked World Number 40 and rising he returned to form at Wimbledon where he had a career best semi-final appearance. In a tumultuous career he has delighted tennis fans all over the world and has won 15 ATP singles titles and earned over $13 million in prize money.

His younger sister 22 year old Dinara has burst into the women’s Top 10 with a fantastic run which started in Berlin where she beat 3 other Top 10 players, including former World Number 1’s Justine Henin and Serena Williams en route to victory, and culminated in the Final of the French Open where she was runner-up to current World Number 1 Ana Ivanovic. It will be her debut appearance at the Hopman Cup.

The Hyundai Hopman Cup is the Official Mixed Championship of the International Tennis Federation, and has come to be regarded as the world’s most prestigious invitational tournament.

The 21st Hyundai Hopman Cup will be played at the Burswood Dome from 3 – 9 January 2009.

OH MY GOD

Hi Emily

*goes and fishes out her Hopman Cup season pass invitation from the bin *
I am planning on going back to Perth for a few weeks in January ... was umm'ing and ahh'ing about whether to go to Hopman, but will definitely go now
Let's hope THIS time Marat actually decides to turn up I don't suppose the start date changing to Jan 3rd has anything to do with Marat wanting to be in Moscow for New Years!!?!?!?

I'm off to book some flights to Perth, babaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
