No time for bullshit around here..will update my record later:
***PLAY OF THE DAY***
Marat Safin 1.76 over Nicolas Lapentti ($5000 to win $3800)
No bullshit about this match guys. Safin was my pick over Hewitt yesterday and he is once again my selection at much better odds than I thought. I don't care what the surface is because over the last 12 months Safin has been a lot better on all surfaces than Lapentti and his first round win went a long way to show that. Lapentti beat Stepanek in his opener after qualifying for the Main Draw with wins over Youzhny and Bellucci. However, he has played in this tournament 6 times before this season and LAPENTTI HAS NEVER MADE IT PAST THE SECOND ROUND AT MONTE CARLO.
Safin on the other hand has been stuck on second round matches for two straight Monte Carlo tournament losing to Vliegen in 2007 and Ferrer in 2008 but Lapentti is not nearly as match ready as those two were and Safin was ranked 93rd in the world at last year's tournament. Everyone is doubting Safin but he made his return to clay for a reason and he should have no problems winning this match. Safin to the bank $$$$$$$$$$$.
